International Small Business Week is taking place this week, from June 27th to July 1st, and to commemorate the occasion, we at Driven wanted to take the opportunity to highlight some of the special offerings that small business owners can take advantage of.

To begin with, Google is providing special discounts on a variety of digital tools designed to make life easier for entrepreneurs.

In addition to their discounted tools, Google’s Small Business Week efforts also include their Heroes of Small Business sweepstakes, encouraging people to nominate their favourite small business to win $10,000 for the business and $500 for you to spend there, and their business scholarships for LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs- providing 60 scholarships to help Black, Latinx and female identifying LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs to grow and scale their businesses.
Show some love and nominate your favourite small business for a chance to win the Heroes of Small Business sweepstakes here.
International Small Business Week only comes around once a year, so this time around don’t let valuable opportunities pass you by. We encourage entrepreneurs to take advantage of all of the offerings that can help your business operate more effectively, expand your reach, and maintain contact with your customers.
Happy International Small Business Week! We’re rooting for you.
