At Vonage, we understand the ambition, creativity, and dedication that is required to start and grow your business.

This was the inspiration for the Home Business 100 campaign: to champion the UK’s home businesses; to showcase the vast economic contribution they make; and to understand the challenges these businesses face along the way.

This year, while we continue to spotlight the successes of the Home Business 100, our campaign will develop further by celebrating ‘step up’ businesses. The home is a great starting place for any business, but growing businesses often need to move beyond the home.

This campaign will offer advice and inspiration on taking those next steps to entrepreneurs and ambitious new companies. To find out more and get to know the outstanding members of this dynamic new community, head over to the ‘Step Ups’.
