A week of Global Entrepreneurship
Many of you may not realise (or have no need to realise) that it is Global Entrepreneurship Week this week – a celebration of innovation, entrepreneurs, small business, large business, new business & household names. At Simply HQ, we are using the week to make our own little waves and to celebrate our little corner of the entrepreneurial world.
Firstly we have launched our Christmas Campaign – #SimplyFestive. The campaign is our way of sharing the very best, handpicked members in our directory as well as an opportunity to remind everyone about the value ad magic of doing Christmas a simple and local way. We will focus on the economic and cultural impact that going local has at Christmas as well as the beautiful products and services created with love by our amazing member businesses.
This week we are also celebrating a very special launch – The Business School at Staffordshire University has received the Small Business Charter award in recognition of its work in supporting small businesses, start-ups and their local economy. We have worked with Staffordshire University on several projects, marrying up our small business members with their expertise and students around subjects like social media, marketing and communication. Congratulations guys – you deserve it!
Finally I am talking to an amazing group of women about how to build confidence in business and in life. Some are business owners and some are not business owners yet – but all of them have real tenacity and will be coming together in celebration of GEW and of their brilliance.
