eBay has unveiled an investment programme and regional roadshow, designed to help small online businesses navigate rising inflation and the impact of the pandemic.

eBay will invest more than £1m in the eBay Business Roadshow, its first physical roadshow and investment programme. The roadshow will see eBay visit 12 cities and towns across the UK over the next year.

The roadshow and investment programme are intended to offer small businesses the skills, funding and networking opportunities to launch or scale their operations, aiming to reach thousands of businesses by the end of March 2023.

Businesses will also be able to access grants at each stop on the roadshow.
