To help start or grow your small business
Small business, big impact
If you’re a small business owner, we want to hear from you.
Simply Business is giving away £25,000 to one lucky entrepreneur who can impress our industry judging panel. Apply by 17 August 2022.
Why small businesses need a boost
Small businesses are the beating heart of the UK economy, and it’s never been more important to support their success.
We want to boost a small business with a £25,000 grant because:
small businesses account for 99% of all British businesses and contribute a combined £2 trillion in annual turnover to the UK economy – we need them to bounce back
for many, getting access to funding is difficult
70 per cent see rising costs as their single biggest challenge in 2022
63 per cent are dealing with a loss of customers
What our judges are looking for
Whether you’re a seasoned business owner or your journey’s just starting – we’d like to hear your story. Your trials, your triumphs, and everything in between. What inspired you to go it alone?
A big dream
Small businesses are built on big dreams – so what’s yours? At Simply Business, we pride ourselves on enabling big dreams, and we want our £25,000 Business Boost to make a real difference.
Positive social impact
As an accredited B Corp, we believe that businesses should be a force for good. From improving diversity and inclusion in your field or community, to how you impact the world around you – we’re looking to hear about the ways your business contributes positively to society.
Innovation comes in many shapes and sizes. For some, it could mean cutting-edge technology. But for others, it might mean the creativity needed to turn a hobby into a business. What sets you and your business idea apart from the competition?
A thought-out plan
We’d like to understand your plan – how will you use the £25,000 to boost your business?
