These are tough times for all of us, and especially for small businesses. We’re encouraged by the 335 million Pinners around the world who are also doing what they can to support the small businesses that fuel our local communities.
Pinterest searches for “support small business” recently increased over 350%, as Pinners look for individual makers and companies to shop online.2
"Small businesses are pivotal to our economy and pivotal to Pinterest,” says Ben Silbermann, Pinterest’s CEO and co-founder. “Their goods and services inspire people all over the world to create the lives they love.”
We'll continue updating this collection with other small business resources as they become available.
We love hearing stories about how Pinterest has made an impact on small businesses. If you’re interested in letting us know, please share your small business story with us!
