Over 500 events in November to support NSW small businesses

NSW Small Business Month will wrap up today with more than 500 events held in November to support and celebrate small businesses across the State.

In all, 274 official collaboration partners have taken part in hosting events and 137 grants made to assist event organisers.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government, Small Business and Fair Trading Victor Dominello said today’s schedule of more than 40 events will conclude the month-long festival.

“NSW Small Business Month has shown the strength of community support for the 800,000 small businesses across the state and the optimism and resilience of business owners and operators, especially over the last two years with drought, fires and floods,” Mr Dominello said.

“They have brought to life the theme of this Small Business Month, ‘Connect for Success’, with their energy, enthusiasm, expertise and sense of community.”

NSW Small Business Commissioner Chris Lamont said many events provided small businesses with opportunities to network and share information with other small businesses.

“Running your own small business can be isolating, yet they employ almost half of the workforce and represent 98 per cent of all business in NSW,” Mr Lamont said.

“Small Business Month connects small business owners and operators with others like them so they can share their challenges and successes.”

Mr Dominello said the NSW Government thanked all businesses and organisations, large and small, for their participation in Small Business Month and their continued support of small businesses in NSW.

“We look forward to an even bigger event in 2023 which will again celebrate the achievements of our small businesses and assist them in their growth and development.”
