The lowdown on the #SmallBusinessCrisisNow campaign from Wenta...

Wenta, leading social enterprise for startups and small businesses, have set up a Government petition for cash grants to be extended to small businesses that don’t qualify for Small Business Rates Relief (SBRR).

wenta logoThe petition is being run alongside the digital campaign of #SmallBusinessCrisisNow and has already attracted over 18,000 signatures meaning that the Government are now required to provide a response.

Wenta are still waiting for this response however and are calling for further signatures and support with this petition to achieve 100,000 signatures which will trigger a Parliamentary debate on this should the first Government response not be adequate.

The petition has achieved reach from every part of the UK from Cumbria to Cornwall and has been spread largely across social media sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.

Wenta’s CEO, Ed Jordan, said:

We are in support of the Government’s support measures announced so far however they need to understand that millions of small businesses fall through these support gaps and need cash grants now. Cash - not loans, now - not later. It makes economic sense too – these small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and are tomorrow’s medium and large organisations.”

If you would like to support this campaign for small businesses, you can sign the petition or you can share the link and tag @thewentagroup on Twitter, /TheWentaGroup on LinkedIn and Facebook and use the hashtag #SmallBusinessCrisisNow
