About Small Business Month

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 devasting bushfires and the global COVID-19 pandemic, we know this is the 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.

We’ve highlighted some amazing small business owners from across NSW who, in the face of COVID-19, quickly pivoted and changed the way they do business.

From strengthening your financial foundations to growing with digital technologies, we’re here to support all small businesses as they enter their recovery phase. This year we’ve teamed up with a host of collaboration partners to curate a wide array of activities in both metro and regional areas for October’s NSW Small Business Month festival. 

We encourage you to explore our many other grants, programs and initiatives and the Business Connect program to receive free business advice from specialist advisors across the state.
