Small Business Month 2022 comes with the focus to Rebuild, Recharge, and Renew.
“The last two years have been incredibly difficult for the small business community, and sadly, many haven’t been able to keep their businesses going,” said Business NSW Chief Executive Daniel Hunter.
“Small Business Month gives us all a chance to recognise our favourite small business and give them the encouragement to keep on doing what they do best,” Mr Hunter said.
“There will be hundreds of events right across the State in the month of March showcasing the best small businesses and the role they play in the prosperity of their local towns and broader regional economies.
“As an official collaborative partner, Business NSW will be facilitating a number of workshops and events under the Small Business Month banner, bringing people together to share ideas, lessons and opportunities that have arisen through the challenges of the pandemic.
“It’s also an opportunity to recognise the significant contribution of Local Chambers of Commerce, and many have been provided funding through the Small Business Commissioner to showcase their region during this month.
“Small Business Month is a reminder that as our lives slowly return to normal, your local small business still needs your continued support as they cant just snap back into a position of prosperity.
“Australia, and NSW in particular, is a small business economy, with almost 800,000 small businesses across the State employing over 1.6 million people and contributing $400 billion each year to our economy.
“Together with our continued support, we can all help small businesses across NSW Rebuild, Recharge, and Renew,” Mr Hunter said.
