Our mission & policies

Our mission.

Together – the business fightback starts here. 

One day we will see the green shoots of recovery; one day we will see the economy awaken from this humanitarian and economic nightmare; one day we will start to rebuild our dreams and our small businesses.  

One day. 

When that day comes, BackinBusiness will be here for you. With our team of experts, we will help you navigate the new commercial landscape. It will be a strange new corporate environment, but we will guide you, help you, encourage you. 

BackinBusiness has some of the leading experts from the world of business, commerce, journalism, media and the law. Specialists with an expertise in helping small businesses, freelancers and entrepreneurs get back in business. 

The small businesses sector is the backbone of the UK economy and more needs to be done to help and encourage them. Their dreams, their vision, their skills are vital in our post-Corona fight-back. 

We want to engage with you and ensure that the people in the corridors of power hear your stories, understand your needs and work in your best interest.   

The business fightback starts here.
