Small Business Month is a series of hundreds of events to help your business succeed. Gain valuable support, be inspired to start, run or grow your business, and connect with like-minded people. Find an event near you, or join one online.
Funded by the NSW Government and presented by the NSW Department of Industry, it provides practical information, ideas and networking opportunities to help businesses start up and grow.
It’s a chance to celebrate the role our 736,000 small to medium-sized businesses play in creating jobs for 44% of our workforce and how they drive economic growth across the state.
All NSW councils have been invited to participate and run events for their business communities. Local chambers of commerce and other business groups will also hold sessions to upskill and build resilience.
A wide range of events
Small Business Month aims to make NSW the easiest place to start or grow a business, with themes ranging from essential building blocks for starting a small business, a focus on hot spots such as Western Sydney, futureproofing businesses with digital technology and fostering female entrepreneurs.
