Small Business Network for businesses in Tooting and beyond

The Small Business Network, Tooting is a networking group of local businesses in Tooting and beyond.

I started the group in 2020 and before the Covid pandemic because I wanted to be part of a group of small businesses where I could go to for help, support and inspiration.

My vision for the group was and still is, a group for small businesses to connect, learn and grow together.

Since then we have had many workshops online and in person on topics and also networking events.

Our regular meeting is on the last Wednesday of the month in person at the Regent in Balham, in the evening from 7.30pm.

We also have networking nights, which are bigger events with many local businesses attending. We meet at the Exhibit in Balham for these.

We regularly organise workshops on Marketing, Social Media, Video confidence, Branding, Wellbeing, PR opportunities and during the pandemic the group was a source of ongoing support.

If you would like to join the Small Business Network, you can join our private facebook group and also follow our Instagram account (both linked below) and also come along to our events. 

Our members are small businesses in the professionals services industry, wellbeing, marketing, branding and design, social media, virtual assistants, estate agents as well as e-commerce.

Jona from Time4PA is the social media manager of the group and she does an excellent job.

The vision of the grup is to be a hub for small businesses to network, connect, learn and grow together.
