Mi Ventures is to continue its support for Small Business Saturday with free Live Chat business advice for entrepreneurs across the country.

Experienced advisors from Mi Ventures will offer instant-response guidance to small businesses via Live Chat in the run up to Small Business Saturday on 3rd December.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots campaign that supports, promotes and inspires small businesses.

Michelle Ovens, National Campaign Director at Small Business Saturday UK, said: “Budding entrepreneurs across the UK really will be able to get help and advice from experienced business advisors when they need it.”

As well as access to business advisors, small businesses will also be able to create and join communities, download a wealth of valuable business information, including useful articles and templates, and keep up-to-date with the latest small business news and events.

The Mi Ventures unique, Live Chat facility is currently available to 4.8 million potential users across the country.  Figures show that start-up businesses that use the service enjoy a 93% survival success rate after two years, compared to 73% nationally.

Mi Ventures is currently working with 34 local authorities, libraries and business centres across the country to support start-ups and small businesses. 


Greg Thomas, Director of Mi Ventures, said:  “Our aim is to act as a catalyst for enterprise across the country by providing a Live Chat service that gives budding entrepreneurs and business owners convenient and easy access to business support. 

“Mi Ventures is proud to continue its support for Small Business Saturday which has become an important date in the small business calendar.  We are looking forward to working with local authorities and organisations across the country in providing much sought-after business advice which goes far beyond just signposting other sources of help.”
