our history



Our History
Business NSW has been helping to create a better Australia since 1826. 

Advocacy is in our DNA. As the State’s peak business organisation, we are an authoritative voice for businesses in the public arena, challenging governments and decision-makers to create the economic conditions that allow businesses to grow and drive our State forward. 

Our experience has proven that working together drives prosperity, creates new jobs and builds better communities for everyone.

We’re here to help businesses of all sizes. Our commercial services division, Business Australia, provides a range of services that help businesses become more productive, competitive and profitable, with the operating surplus going back to support Business NSW advocacy initiatives.
