Micro businesses in Hull are giving up their time to support each other as part of a nationwide initiative.

The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank and Hull City Council’s Youth Enterprise Team will today be focussing their efforts on assisting the city’s aspiring entrepreneurs during Micro Biz Matters Day, which takes place every year across the UK.

A video featuring several local businesses, including Weasie Wears, Apple Pear, Engaging Education, Labrascals and Millie Rose, will be used on the day as part of the Enterprising Young People hour, hoping to inspire the next generation of micro businesses.

“Young people who set up a business are just like any other person, however, often they are not taken seriously by larger organisations and businesses, and like all micro businesses they are playing a vital role in reviving the economy,” says Ross Bennett, chair of the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership.

“It’s not always about high growth and expansion for young people, it’s about enjoying what they are doing and many are wanting to put back into their community, not because it’s the trendy thing to do but because it’s the right thing to do and for that reason I am pleased that so many young people are making a contribution to #MicroBizMattersDay.”

Micro businesses nationwide are encouraged to give eight minutes of their time to support to other micro businesses as part of Micro Biz Matters Day.

Customers, cash flow and confidence are this year’s three main areas of focus.
