Understanding the nanobusiness opportunity

Nanobusinesses are essential for households to survive and thrive after the COVID-19 crisis. They will provide valuable additional income and enable people to get out of debt, stop being underemployed and get back to work if they’ve been made redundant.

Nanobusinesses are a feature of the Digital Economy, which has provided powerful platforms for people to sell their skills, their time, things that they already own, their influence, or even goods on a part-time basis. There is even an opportunity to combine one or more nanobusinesses to create a full time income for an individual.

Nanobusinesses represent a significant opportunity for B2B telecoms service providers, but only if they recognise the opportunity, adjust the way they think about households, and target packages aimed at supporting nanobusiness workers.
