eBay UK’s first ever physical regional roadshow and investment programme in the UK kicks off with the Sheffield eBay Business Roadshow taking place on the 27th and 28th of April and you can attend.
eBay is investing over £1m to deliver a year-long support programme, visiting 12 cities and towns in the next 12 months and expecting to reach thousands of small businesses by the end of March 2023.
eBay has partnered with both Small Business Britain and British Chambers of Commerce to deliver the eBay Business Roadshow, alongside business organisations and experts specific to each region who can provide hyperlocal advice. Ongoing access to networking, skills and training via its online learning tool, eBay Academy, will also be provided throughout.
Sheffield eBay Business Roadshow
The first two day Roadshow will be held at Sheffield City Hall at the end of this month, and will kick off with speeches from Murray Lambell, General Manager at eBay, and Michelle Ovens, founder of Small Business Britain before a packed afternoon of educational sessions and networking, with eBay experts on hand to answer questions throughout the day. Further educational sessions on how to start up and scale up small businesses will also be held the following day – from building a sustainable business to hiring and retaining talent.
Business Clinics with eBay, Small Business Britain and the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce will also be held on-site, providing free 1-2-1 advice and solutions to address the challenges of budding entrepreneurs and small business owners – from marketing to accessing finance to selecting the right delivery provider. Businesses will also be able to access grants funding at each event, with eBay investing over £1 million in grants over the next 12 months.
