Small Business Month 2020

Small Business Month 2020

#NSWSmallBiz20

NSW Small Business Month, brought to you by the NSW Government, is the only dedicated festival for small businesses in NSW. Hundreds of free and low-cost activities are ready to kick off this October to support NSW small businesses.

In the wake of devastating bushfires and the global COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 is one of the toughest years many small businesses have faced. Many have suffered immeasurable losses. Some have pivoted more than once to retain customers and move online. Others have worked to capture new markets and radically change their offerings. Small Business Month 2020 is all about supporting businesses as they enter the recovery phase and this year the NSW Government have teamed up with a host of partner to curate a wide array of activities to assist doing just that.

We encourage you to explore the various activities available throughout the month (both online and in person) and check out the Business Connect program to receive free business advice from specialist advisors.
