TikTok Small Business Block Party
Running a successful small business takes hard work and determination at the best of times. The last 18 months have put huge pressure on small businesses in almost all industries. From adapting to ecommerce strategies to keeping employees in employment, the strength and spirit of the small business community in the US has been commendable.
TikTok’s party in is recognition and celebration of the hard work and resilience of small business owners throughout these unprecedented times.
Becca Sawyer, TikTok’s Global Head of SMB, commented on the aim of the Small Business Block Party event:
“Businesses of all sizes are using the magic of the TikTok community to reach new audiences and expand their business — whether it’s a startup or an iconic local business.
“Our goal is to give every business owner in America the same opportunities as the biggest brands and to help them turn their dreams into a reality,” Sawyer added.
