The Small Business Network, Tooting is a business network for small businesses in Tooting and beyond.

It all started in 2020 and just before the Covid pandemic from a desire that I felt strongly about – to be part of a group of other businesses where I could go to for help, support and inspiration.

As a small business owner, headshots photographer in Tooting, running everything by myself could sometimes be lonely & often mentally challenging.

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

Over the past 4 years we have had many networking events, workshops, online and in person on various topics with speakers, coctail demos, a Christmas Fair and it is always very exciting to be surrounded by like-minded businesses.

We currently run regular Coffee Mornings and Networking Nights, which are events that many businesses from South West London and further afield attend.

The atmosphere is electric and I always feel such a buzz during the sessions, something many others that come to the events also share.

We have speakers who are experts in their fields & share with us their tips and bitesize learning on: Marketing, Social Media, Video, Branding, Wellbeing, PR, etc.

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 too) 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.

The group has been greatly supported by local media Tooting Newsie and Balham Newsie and of course all our followers.

The Small Business Network, is an Exciting Place to be for Small Businesses to Connect, Learn and Grow together.
