Join the #AbsaSmallBizFriday movement and help small businesses grow, employ more, reduce unemployment and nurture the country’s entrepreneurial spirit.

The Small Business Friday Movement, sponsored by Absa, encourages all South Africans to go out there and support local small businesses. It's a 365 day drive that peaks on the first Friday of Spring every year.

Now is the time to celebrate and recognise the importance of the small business community, now more than ever.

How does it work?

Every Friday we take to social media to educate, inspire, remind and motivate South Africa to take action and support small business in their local communities.

Whether you have a business, your family or friends own a business or if you just love supporting local, we need your voice to spread the word and your commitment to shop at small businesses to make a meaningful change in countless lives.

Join us for the ultimate high profile panel discussion and B2B networking event to celebrate the biggest small business day of the year!

It’s all about celebrating and recognising the importance of the small business community and providing the ultimate platform to network with like-minded SMEs, successful entrepreneurs, business leaders, funders and potential partners.
