Top Tip #4


What is #SBS Small Business Sunday?

  • Theo Paphitis created the Small Business Sunday (#SBS on Twitter) concept in October 2010, inviting small businesses to tweet at him with a description of their venture to secure his endorsement.
  • Every Monday, six of these businesses are then invited to become part of the now 2,500 strong #SBS community, benefiting from boosted publicity and attendance at a yearly conference.

What is the #SBS Pavilion?

The #SBS Pavilion at Autumn Fair is a showcase dedicated to highlighting new and innovative products from inspiring start-ups and small businesses.

  • #SBS community members entered a competition to win one of the 12 spaces in the #SBS Pavilion at Autumn Fair.
  • The 12 winners were chosen from a shortlist of 36 companies by a panel of Autumn & Spring Fair experts.
  • You’ll be able to meet these 12 amazing businesses, and see their innovative products at the #SBS Pavilion this September.



Join us as Theo Paphitis turns interviewer, to find out how these small businesses have fared over the last year, how they have grown to service the larger orders over they have had placed, and lessons they have learned along the way.
