Proud to have been chosen as organisation of the year 2017.


Every year, the ISSBA committee selects a charity / organisation from amongst their members to become their Charity / Organisation ofthe Year. This year they are supporting our Social Enterprise I Roll Up My Sleeves and our Ethical Business Networking.


SSBA provides a forum for the mutual support of small businesses in Ipswich and surrounding parts of Suffolk, in the east of England. It is an informal organisation of business owners and others involved with small businesses, funded by sponsorship, members' subscriptions and organised by an elected committee.

Run entirely by a team of volunteers, for the past 28 years ISSBA is proud to be the only organisation of its kind in East Anglia.

They offer cost effective, clear and relevant support to it's members and work closely with partner organisations to ensure our goals for growth are aligned to the Suffolk Growth Strategy.

Activities include monthly meetings, events of both a business or social nature. Our flagship Business to Business Exhibition, the Anglia Business Exhibition that is held each May at Trinity Park, Ipswich and monthly business workshops. ISSBA keeps in touch with its members through a monthly e-newsletter, a directory of members and the website.
