#MicroBizMatters Day

How do I get involved?

Search for #MicroBizMatters on Twitter and Facebook and you’ll soon get the hang of what people are doing on the day. All of them, always over one million, are giving a little time to help other business owners.  There are many offline events organised too – business owners getting together for a coffee and to watch the livestreaming on their laptops or phones.

Celebrity Entrepreneur Guests

The Small is Beautiful Roll of Honour lists all of these kind entrepreneurs that have freely given their time to #MicroBizMatters Day. You can read profiles of most of them in the PDFs of the souvenir programmes for 2016, 2017 and 2018.
