Small Business Saturday 2018
30 November 2018
Saturday 1st December marks the sixth annual Small Business Saturday, a day of celebrating small businesses across the UK. Part of the Small Business Saturday campaign is Small Biz 100, which celebrates 100 outstanding small businesses around the UK. This year, 16 of the 100 businesses selected for the campaign are London based. In 2017 £748 million was spent on the actual day of the campaign, a 4 per cent increase from 2016.
Our chair, the Mayor of London, said:
“More than 99 per cent of businesses in our city are small businesses – and during these challenging times, I am absolutely delighted to support this initiative.
“I have vowed to be London’s most pro-business Mayor – and I will continue to do all I can to help companies of all shapes and sizes to flourish and create an economy that delivers for everyone and leaves none of London’s communities behind.
“I’d like to urge Londoners to support this hugely important initiative and help boost your local small businesses on Saturday, December 1 and beyond.”
