AMAZON and Enterprise Nation, the small business support network, have launched the Amazon Small Business Accelerator, a major support package small firms and start-ups across the UK.

The free online training programme aims to help more than 200,000 businesses at every stage.

Firms can take a quick online diagnostic test to find the learning path that best fits with the current stage of their business – “Start”, “Grow” or “Turbo”.

Amazon is currently helping thousands of small businesses across the UK with storage and removal fee waivers for new Selling Partners.

One such business is Nudie Snacks, in East Ayrshire, founded by Tracey Hogarth, from Stewarton, whose plant-based snack company has switched focus during lockdown from delivering to offices to selling on Amazon Marketplace.
