Inspire Series

Small Business Saturday exists to support, inspire and promote small businesses. Our ‘Inspire Series’ first began in 2014 and now sees a number of brilliant entrepreneurs and figures in the world of small business give talks and workshops to existing and aspiring small businesses & entrepreneurs for free. Last years Inspire talks can be found on our YouTube Channel.

The series is always live streamed and recorded onto YouTube with a live Twitter Q&A. This allows for digital participation for those who cannot make the talks in person.

Inspire series talks coming up on the right. Get in touch at comms@smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com if you are interested in attending any of these talks.

In 2015, we will once again be highlighting 100 small businesses, one a day for the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday 2015.

For the last two years, the 100 have not only received exposure on our social media channels and in the local press, but also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at a reception in Downing Street with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. Below you will find our calendar of our Small Biz 100 from 2014.

Applications for 2015 will open on June 1st, 2015.
