We are delighted to have once again opened applications for the Small Biz 100! It’s a unique opportunity for you to celebrate and promote your small business, to learn from other small business owners, and to join our growing Small Biz 100 alumni family.
Here are some answers to common questions about the Small Biz 100.
What is the Small Biz 100?
Small Business Saturday chooses 100 amazing small businesses from the thousands of applications we receive, and then highlight one small business every day for the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday on 1st December 2018. The 100 receive exposure on our social media channels and in local and national press, and also have the opportunity to meet and work with other small businesses, creating a valuable network and support system.
Who can apply to be in Small Biz 100?
Any kind of small business based in the UK can apply, whether it's retail or online, professional services to personal training.
When and how can I apply?
Applications opened on 1st June and will close on 30th June. Successful applicants will be notified by email in August. Click here to start the application process.
I get an error message when I try to register with my email address.
Please make sure that your email address is right (it's happened to all of us!) and that you have both read the T&Cs and checked the little box to say you are happy with them.
If it's still not working, please send a screen shot of the error to [email protected] and we will help you from there.
I registered with my email address but didn't receive an email.
Please check your spam folders – it's quite likely that we're hiding in there. If it's been a couple of hours and you haven't received an email, please let us know via [email protected].
I can't log in with the email address and password that I used to register.
Please ensure your password is correct. Our password system is case sensitive.
I finished my application to be in Small Biz 100, but want to change something. Is this possible?
Yes - you can change your application right up to the deadline at midnight on the 30th June. 
What is My Small Business Finder?
My Small Business Finder is a tool for consumers and small businesses to use on Small Business Saturday and the run up to it which will enable you to enter a postcode and see the small businesses in that area. It is available on the campaign website and mobile app (do make sure you have downloaded the app to find great small businesses in your area!).
In addition, it will also allow you, as a small business, to enter a promotion, deal or offer available to celebrate Small Business Saturday. It's just our way of trying to connect more customers with small businesses, and of course more small businesses getting to know each other. Nearer the time, we will let all our networks know via social media when they should be thinking about My Small Business Finder.
