Businesses to gain free legal insights at Theo Paphitis’ Small Business Sunday event

iLaw, has once again been invited to attend Small Business Sunday, or #SBS, as it prepares for its 10th-anniversary event in February.

We are long-time supporters of the annual #SBS show and this year will be extending our help further by opening a free legal clinic, where guests can speak to members of our experienced team.

#SBS was created by Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis in 2010 to recognise up and coming entrepreneurs by sharing their stories online.

Every Monday night at 8pm, Theo selects his favourite six entrepreneurs from posts that used the #SBS hashtag.

These six winners are then re-tweeted to nearly 500,000 followers, giving them a free marketing boost, entry into the #SBS network of like-minded businesses and access to the free annual event.

Now in its 10th year, the show will be held on Friday 28 February 2020 at a secret location in Birmingham known only to SBS winners. It will offer a day of advice, networking and an opportunity for winners to collect a certificate and get a picture with Theo.

Justin Ellis, a Director at iLaw, said: “It is incredible to think that for the last 10 years business up and down the country have been able to benefit from #SBS.

“Theo has worked really hard to create a network, consisting of thousands of innovative businesses, and we are excited that we can play some role in advising them and helping them on their way to success.”

As a provider of legal services to a number of start-ups and established businesses in the tech, media and film sectors, we have proudly sponsored the #SBS campaign since 2013.

Thanking iLaw for its support, Theo Paphitis said: “The annual #SBS event is a key date in my calendar, as is a brilliant litmus test to see how the UK’s small businesses are doing.

“Having businesses like iLaw on board as our sponsor means that the #SBS winners get a brilliant day full of advice and networking – and all for free!”
