On Friday 28th Feb, Connected York founders Melissa and Andrew travelled to Birmingham, to collect their Small Business Sunday award from retail magnate, entrepreneur and TV ‘Dragon’, Theo Pathitis.
Connected York were a #SBS Winner in 2019, and the event was to celebrate all winners – and get to meet the man himself.
Small Business Sunday
The recognition, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Each week, Theo rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their businesses in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS.
At the event, Melissa and Andrew heard from keynote speakers representing Google and LinkedIn – as well as North-East champion and youngest ever Dragon, Sara Davies MBE.
Getting involved with SBS is great for Connected York. Not only is it helping to spread the word of the Connected App, but it’s also joined us with other York and Yorkshire winners who we hope to forge stronger relationships with. Watch this space!!
For now, it’s onwards and upwards!!
