About NSW Small Business Month
NSW Small Business Month, brought to you by the NSW Government, is the only dedicated festival for small businesses in NSW. October 2020 brought hundreds of free and low-cost activities to support NSW small businesses to reboot, connect and recover.
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.
We hope to bring NSW Small Business Month back for its fifth consecutive year in 2021 and continue to support entrepreneurs, start-ups and established businesses to succeed and grow. In the meantime, 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.
