People across NSW can receive free, personalised business support next week.
On 26 and 27 October, more than 50 Service NSW Centres will host pop-up booths as part of Small Business Month.
The specialised Business Booths, available from 10am to 4pm, will provide face-to-face support for business owners.
Each Business Booth will host a Service NSW Business Concierge who can identify unique business needs and strengths and connect customers to government services or advice to create a tailored plan. This includes help with applying for licences and permits and accessing mental health support for business owners and employees.
Business Concierges can also connect business owners with an independent Business Connect or Aboriginal business advisor for help with essential business management topics such as business planning, marketing and cash flow, alongside access to events and online resources with practical insights and business skills development.
“The NSW government is focused on removing barriers for small business owners at every stage of their business journey, so to celebrate we’re providing Business Booths in Service NSW Centres across the state during Small Business Month,” says NSW Minister for Small Business Steve Kamper.
“The Business Booths are a wonderful way to connect with the business community while providing free, face-to-face support for people looking to start, run or grow a business in NSW.
“A strong business idea is the same in any language, in every community and Service NSW can coordinate translating services in any language to be available for an advisory session.”
NSW Small Business Month is a month-long program created for small businesses across the state to attend events aligned to their individual business interests. The theme for 2023 is My Small Business and is focused on providing assistance and tips on how small businesses can strengthen their business.
