Driven by a passion for micro business that stems back decades, more decades than they would like to admit, Tina Boden and Tony Robinson OBE set out on a mission in 2011 to make life in micro business better.
On 9th January 2012, on North Bay beach in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, Enterprise Rockers was launched. With no Government funding, no bank or corporate organisation sponsorship just an ongoing belief that there needs to be greater recognition for the benefits that the smallest businesses in the world bring, Tina and Tony have invested time and money they earn from running their own micro businesses to drive this independent community interest company forward.
As Enterprise Rockers has grown so has the number of people owning businesses that employ between 0 & 9. In the UK alone there are just under 5 million micro businesses with an estimated 500,000 starting out on the self employment path every year. Many different networks engage with the owners of these businesses and support them in different ways. At Enterprise Rockers we are not looking to re-invent the wheel we just want to keep it turning, helping those that are beyond start up to keep going.
Enterprise Rockers is a ‘network of networks’ – we are a free to join in band of people who get together through online and offline networking, linking those that engage with us to existing organisations that can help them if necessary. Social Media, Micro Biz Matters Day events or informal interaction where you live is all part of ensuring micro business owners see the benefits of being involved with a band of people that are doing it for themselves and ensuring they are rocking the global economies by creating the ‘Power of Plenty’.
If you employ between 0 & 9 people you are a micro business owner and that makes you an Enterprise Rocker – come and join the band!
