Did you know that when you spend $100 at a small local business, $68 stays in the community? When you shop at a large corporate chain that number is reduced to $43 and virtually nothing when you shop online. This is the kind of message we’re spreading and we think it’s important for communities to understand why supporting small businesses matters.
Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming artist, try a new mom and pop restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness enthusiast or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention.
We believe that small businesses need an advocate – somebody who is actively spreading the message to “Support Local” on their behalf. We hope to grow a community of small business owners and advocates that help us continue spreading the word. Small businesses are what make our communities feel like, well, communities. They’ve always been there for us. Now it’s our turn to be there for them. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives, charities, and entrepreneurs each week.
Community Spotlight Series
The Community Spotlight Series provides a platform for local small businesses to share their story and connect with the community. We believe community is a driving force among consumers. Our mission is to help small businesses, non-profits, and independent artists who aspire to make the world a better place to gain exposure and connect powerfully with an audience so they make a bigger impact in the world.
Our goal at 303 Pulse is to help foster collaboration and support for local entrepreneurs, charitable causes, and creatives that make our city interesting. We want to share stories that inspire you to connect with our vibrant community, so people get to know each other and their stories at a deeper, more personal level.
303 Pulse is built on recommendations from the community; it’s how we uncover hidden gems and trailblazers, so if you or someone you know deserves recognition please let us know by sending a message to [email protected].
