Applications open for Small Business Saturday 2022 on 3 December

The applications for this year’s Small Biz 100 are now officially open!

Small Business Saturday is once again highlighting 100 small businesses, one a day for the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate and support small businesses in our local communities, many of whom take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.

For the last 9 years, these 100 small businesses have not only received exposure on Small Business Saturday’s social media channels and in the local and national 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. Click here to find out more about why you should apply.

The Small Business Saturday campaign is a grassroots, non-commercial initiative, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ in support of the UK’s 5.8 million small businesses. It also gives small businesses, which often don’t have the budget for PR and marketing, the platform to promote their products. According to estimates, £1.1 billion was spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday in 2021.

As advisers to Britain’s small businesses, we are encouraging everyone to get involved. Start the day with a coffee from a local café. Then do some Christmas shopping at a small neighbourhood retailer. Take a look at social media to find out what events your local area is hosting. Visit a family-owned restaurant or bar. You can also go online to find out how the UK’s many digital small businesses are getting involved in the campaign this year.

We are here to support small businesses and we encourage everyone to do the same.
