We created Small Business Heroes back in 2013 to celebrate the people behind SMEs.

We felt their amazing achievements were going unrecognised.

To this day they remain a cornerstone of British industry:

  • Small businesses accounted for 99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2018 and 99.9% were small or medium-sized (SMEs).
  • Total employment in SMEs was 16.3 million; 60% of all private sector employment in the UK.
  • The combined annual turnover of SMEs was £2.0 trillion, 52% of all private sector turnover.
  • SMEs account for at least 99.5% of the businesses in every main industry sector.

We doff our hats to the UK’s small businesses and if you’re a small business owner, we wish you the very best of luck.

Small Business Heroes may return, but for now, we’re focussing on our core agency business of B2B PR, social media and SEO.

So until next time…
