Event description
How can your small business compete with Amazon?

About this Event

Are you a small business owner? Do you have a shop on a high street? Are you wondering how digital tools could help your business grow? Then come and join our evening symposium!

Dozens is a fintech that cares about financial inclusion, small businesses and the future of struggling high streets. We have teamed up with Westminster City Council and are running an engagement with residents and businesses in the Harrow Road area, around personal finance and digital skills. 

Top down approaches to regenerate high streets aren't making enough impact. So we’re bringing together tech innovators with the small businesses themselves in an initiative supported by Westminster City Council. Ultimately with the goal of empowering small retailers to compete against the likes of Amazon. 

Who will be there:

Small businesses, local businesses and community representatives

Westminster City Council 

GLA

What are the impediments that need to be overcome for the tech to be effective?

What skills gaps/ acceptance gaps are there amongst small retailers?
