We're proud to support small businesses worldwide

Four customers, four countries, one story

We’ve all faced uncertainty and the pressure to adapt during a difficult 2020. None more so than small and medium-sized businesses – the beating heart of any economy – who have faced unprecedented challenges to operate this year.

We spoke to four of our customers from across the globe – Gandys from the UK, Drees & Sommer in Germany, DEHA in Italy and Corral & Vargas in Spain – about their experiences running a small business during these difficult times. They shared how they’ve stayed connected with customers and colleagues, their key learnings and how they’ve found opportunity amidst uncertainty.

We’re proud to support these businesses and many more through our V-Hub, packed with insights, guidance and support for small and medium-sized businesses – all in one place.
