Amazon have announced the launch of Small Business Month, a new small business exclusive incentive that includes a series of events, activities, and deals to provide insights and tools for solopreneurs and small business owners.
SBM kicked off with the Small Business Summit on September 8th, a free virtual summit featuring actionable insights from experts, including entrepreneurs turned best-selling authors, top industry experts, and leaders.
Small Business Month will include Small Business Deals Week, from September 12-18, when Amazon Business will offer discounted exclusive pricing promotions for small business customers. Categories of discount promotions include PCs, consumables, office products, home and furniture items, and devices.
As part of this, a Small Business Grants program will also be launched, awarding more than $250,000 in business grants to a handful of growing small businesses. Existing business customers with annual revenues of $1 million or less can apply for a grant, with one grand-prize winner and a group of finalists and semifinalists receiving monetary grants, Business Prime Memberships, Amazon Web Services credits and training benefits, and more.
We are committed to empowering entrepreneurs and small business owners to thrive, and Small Business Month is a way to give back and provide the very best customer experience for them. Amazon Business is invested in the success of small business customers. When they grow, we grow, which enables us to increase selection, reduce prices, and add additional features and benefits, all of which are important to small business owners. These entrepreneurs face unique challenges and circumstances, and we’re here to be a partner in their continued success.– Todd Heimes, small business director of Amazon Business
