Our friends over in America are participating by holding #MicroBizMattersDay parties too.

“There is an extra bonus for micro business owners the following day. We have teamed up with Enterprise Nation StartUp 2017 who are holding events in London, Birmingham and Bristol. The event is the UK’s largest start-up show of the New Year and the place to be if 2017 is your year to start a business or brush up on business skills. After #MicroBizMattersDay it’s the best way to get a business idea off the ground.”

Tina Boden said, “It is a great honour that we have so many media partners and business membership bodies supporting what we do and we cannot thank them enough for spreading the #MicroBizMattersDay message. In 2017, we would like all business owners to spend 13 minutes helping other business owners with winning and keeping more customers and improving cash-flow – #IGave13 Minutes.

“#MicroBizMattersDay is a great opportunity for business owners everywhere to help each other in their business development. There will be eight hours of exhilarating learning sessions taking place throughout the day.”

The media support on the day includes Start Your Business TV, Plan Digital and Share Radio.
Other media outlets are very welcome to attend on the day.

The event will allow over one million business owners to engage and learn online (2016’s #MicroBizMattersDay trended on twitter for 5 hours) with 100 micro (0-9 employees) business owners attending the main event in London to meet some of Tina and Tony’s famous friends – all business leaders in their own field.
