Many small businesses die within the first few years of their existence, not because they are not initiated by talented people or that the planning was defective. Most die because they do not have a solid structure in place to ensure that the day-to-day running of their businesses works towards the sustainability of the venture. For many people in the creative industry who are ruled by the passion for what they do, it is not uncommon that the business side of their businesses is often neglected for the service delivery which gives them satisfaction. This means that many make long-term commitments on short-term profits, among other poor decisions that put pressure on the business venture until it runs aground. When added to the challenge of the cut-throat competition in the global digital business environment, the chances of survival for many micro and small businesses seem to dwindle still. Thankfully, technology allows for different innovations whereby small businesses can pool together their resources to obtain essential services for a fraction of what they would have had to pay originally. For instance, accounting services, information technology services, legal services and even human resource services can be outsourced in modern times, instead of having in-house departments that might not always be active, but need to be paid regularly. Leveraging on this, business concerns have also arisen to create communities for certain service providers to access services that will enable them to improve their businesses, as well as reach wider audiences than they would on their own. One such concern is Jewel Street, a platform that claims to connect a global community of creatives, emerging designers and independent brands.
Jewel Street is an online community for independent designers to reach wider audiences. The company, which claims to curate hand-picked designs for its customers, works to ensure the survival of small and micro businesses in a highly competitive business environment. Jewel Street is headquartered in Bristol, United Kingdom.
