Small But Mighty businesses

SMEs can build a better future for Britain

Embedded in the fabric of our society and vital to our economy and culture, SMEs employ millions of people and serve communities across the country. Over the last year, the people working for and with SMEs have faced unpreceded challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite this, they have shown ingenuity and resolve during these challenging business conditions.

While times remain tough, passion for their business is what makes these people truly special. As we look to the future, many are thinking about their next steps and their aspirations for their business in a changed world. While they may be small, these businesses are mightier than they have ever been before.

The period of uncertainty has helped build a nation of better businesses. 

Small businesses are the backbone of Britain

Small businesses provide work for millions, serving communities up and down the country. In the last few months, the people working in and with those businesses have demonstrated remarkable determination, strength of character and creativity.

But above all, they care. That is what makes them special. And it’s what fuels their resilience now. It’s also why we believe their stories need to be shared. They may be small, but their impact is mighty.

They will be the heart of our recovery.
