#MicroBizMattersDay, the global day of Recognition, Action (#IGave13 minutes) and Learning (8 hours) engages with millions of micro business owners all donating time to help each other and ensure a rocking successful New Year.

Created and hosted by Enterprise Rockers’ Co-Founders, Tina Boden and Tony Robinson OBE, Friday January 13th is expected to be as crazy and inspiring as ever with some new amazing features such as the Global City Parties (thanks to International Development Partner ScanSnap - a Fujitsu company) , 8 Global Learning Hours and a 2 hour Main Event (thanks to Main Event Partner - Pimlico Plumbers) live streamed from London (thanks to Start Your Business Magazine TV and Plan Digital).

This is all thanks to #RockingSupporters, #RockingStarGuests and #RockingHeadRoadies giving their time voluntarily and promoting the day to their #MicroBizOwner customers, suppliers and members. 

If you believe that micro business (0-9 employees) matters then Friday 13th January 2017 is a date for your diary, the third #MicroBizMattersDay dedicated to recognition, action and learning for micro business owners across the world. 2017 will be even bigger (it trended on twitter for 5 hours this year) and better than previous years with parties being held in different cities across the globe to celebrate so many great things the smallest of businesses do to ensure community and economic development.

Created by Tina Boden & Tony Robinson OBE, co-founders of the free, indie, informal, no contact details required Enterprise Rockers C.I.C. movement, January 13th 2017 will see the event coming live from the HQ of one of the 2 Premier Partners for this year - Pimlico Plumbers - London’s largest plumbing and service company founded by Charlie Mullins OBE in 1979.
