With Small Business Saturday around the corner we’re excited to spotlight a company that’s dedicated to empowering small businesses throughout the year.
Small Business Saturday, an annual event celebrated on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, was created by American Express over 13 years ago to encourage shoppers to shop locally and support their community.
The small business landscape has undergone significant transformation over the years. Shaped by dynamic shifts in technology, the economy, and societal trends like remote work and sustainability have heightened competition, supply chain complexities, and increased the focus on customer experience.
We are thrilled to introduce the award-winning online publication for small business owners and entrepreneurs, Small Business Trends, that helps small businesses thrive during Small Business Saturday and beyond.

What inspired you to start offering resources and content tailored to small businesses?

Our mission is to empower small businesses with a robust suite of resources, delivering daily doses of actionable tips and advice.

In 2009, Small Business Trends acquired BizSugar, to further enrich our offerings for the benefit of small businesses.
