Nedbank Small Business Friday, in association with the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) is ALL happening this Friday on the 7 September 2012.
You may be running a small business, but there’s nothing small about the impact small businesses have on our country’s economy.
Two-thirds of all South African workers are employed by small businesses and small businesses contribute over half of our country’s gross domestic product. That’s why Nedbank, in association with the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC), is initiating Small Business Friday on 7 September this year to mobilise the country behind small businesses and ensure that we build sustainable communities throughout South Africa.
It’s about much more than just one day. Through a sustained nationwide initiative we want to bring about permanent change in the hearts of all South Africans. We are hoping to make this an annual initiative – to make every first Friday of spring Small Business Friday, from 7 September 2012 and beyond.
We want to encourage everyone in our country to vote for small business:
with their HEARTS, by supporting a small business with their time or knowledge; •
with their FEET, by visiting a small business in their area; and •
with their WALLETS, by spending at a small business in their area and community.
The National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) looks forward to partnering with you for growth to build a better South Africa. Cast your vote, and make a difference to your business, your community and South Africa.
Please share this communication with all your suppliers and customers, to spread awareness of the initiative and to mobilise the Small Business Friday movement, to making an impact for small businesses.
