Every aspect of our daily lives has been affected by the Coronavirus. And, if you’re a business owner, you’ll understandably be concerned about the impact of this pandemic.

Small and medium businesses (SMEs) make up 99.9% of all private sector businesses in the UK. And when we introduced Three Means Business in 2019, our aim was to champion and support the entrepreneurs who set them up – people who graft behind the scenes and juggle life to build something special and bring unique services and goods to consumers.

Whether you’re a sole trader or a limited company, it’s good to have some extra support from time to time. So, Three Means Business was designed to bring you exclusive partnership deals with some of the best experts out there.

Now, when it feels like you’re working against all the odds, we want to bring you an extra lifeline.

Introducing SME:SOS

Back in September we partnered with Holly & Co to bring entrepreneurs and creative business owners the Congregation of Inspiration. The event in central London was packed with expert key speakers and endless networking possibilities. Now, we’re back together with Holly & Co to sponsor their SME:SOE initiative – bringing a support network to small businesses in the UK, with essential advice for surviving uncertainty.


“In a word full of uncertainty, Holly Tucker MBE, founder of Not On The High Street, Holly & Co, and UK Ambassador to Creative Small Businesses, has created a free resource accessible to small businesses to support them through this tumultuous time – SME.SOS.”

SME:SOS provides content and resources to get you through this tough time. From expert podcasts and Instagram Live videos, to blog articles with tips from key advisors, this will be a reactive resource with the latest advice. You’ll also have support from other like-minded people as Holly & Co build a supportive and proactive community.

To access SME:SOS, head to @hollytucker now, or visit Three Means Business where we’ll be showing the latest podcasts and video updates.
