For the last three 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 receptions in both Downing Street and The Treasury Drum with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

You can view the Small Biz 100 on the calendar below. A new business will be added every day until Small Business Saturday on 3rd December!
