MicroBizMatters 2018
On Friday, January 12, micro business owners from around the world will join together in a social media extravaganza to celebrate 
#MicroBizMatters Day. Over eight hours of broadcasting will be hosted from XYZ Works & Social, 3 Hardman Street, Manchester, M3 3EB.

The aim of #MicroBizMatters Day is that business owners should give a little time to help other business owners kick off the New Year.

Business owners nationwide are encouraged to provide 12 hints or tips, make a 12-minute video supporting another business, buy 12 items from aMicroBizMatters 2018 microbusiness or follow 12 new startups on Twitter. 

The day will recognise small businesses and micro-enterprises globally. In the UK alone, there are over 5.4 million microbusinesses, representing 95% of all businesses. It is estimated that one in every seven working adults run their own micro-enterprise. #MicroBizMatters Day is the biggest independent social media day of recognition, action and learning for business owners in the world. 

Supported by the UK’s major national small business membership organisations, #MicroBizMatters Day will also be joined by a selection of celebrity entrepreneurs such as digital skills and communities’ guru, author and speaker Penny Power OBE and Manchester-based speaker and Dragons’ Den survivor Naomi Timperley FRSA. The star entrepreneur of the many Q & A sessions who has supported every #MicroBizMatters Day is Chris Percival who started his business at the age of 14 and is now listed by Richtopia as one of the UK’s most influential entrepreneurs. 

Chief Executives of the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE), Forum of Private Business (FPB), International Association of Bookkeepers (IAB), The Business Cafe and Freelance Heroes will be in Manchester for the day. They will be joined through Google Hangouts by Enterprise Nation and many other business membership networks. 

#MicroBizMatters Day, now celebrating its fourth year, was created by Tony Robinson OBE and Tina Boden. Tony Robinson OBE is known as the Micro Business Champion, founder of social enterprises to support start-ups and business owners, author and speaker. Tina Boden, aka The Tiny Troubleshooter, is one of the UK’s leading voices for microbusinesses, working to make life better for those that employ zero to nine members of staff. As a passionate ambassador for independent businesses, Tina spends 90% of her budget with micro and ‘indie’ businesses. 

Tony Robinson OBE said,“Micro enterprise owners are major contributors to every nation’s employment, innovation, communities and economic growth. By giving micro business owners the right help in their first eighteen months of operation, particularly peer support, 80% will survive beyond three years. #MicroBizMatters Day connects micro business owners to give them the best possible chance of success.” 

#MicroBizMatters Day will take place on Friday January 12, 2018 from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM at XYZ Works & Social, XYZ Building, 3 Hardman Street, Manchester, M3 3EB. 

Watch the Livestream all day via the YouTube  channel & on Facebook and a big high-5 to Tony Robinson OBE and Tina Boden for putting on the event.
