Business Connect to help NSW Small Businesses

Business Connect to help NSW Small Businesses

New Program

Author: Kate Schwager/Wednesday, 4 January 2017/Categories: Boggabri, Narrabri, Wee Waa, Business

Small businesses are set to benefit from a new $30 million NSW Government investment in Business Connect – a new advisory service specifically designed to help businesses with the digital economy.  Small businesses across Barwon are now able access affordable, high-quality professional advice and specialist digital information since the program launched on January 1.  In regional areas, small businesses can often face additional hurdles in accessing the vital information they need to make informed business decisions and planning – skills which are essential for success whether you are a start-up or looking to grow.  Business Connect will deliver 70 per cent of its services to small businesses across regional NSW.  The program will specifically focus on digital skills to help the 78 per cent of NSW small businesses which are not yet fully digital.  

The program includes:

·       A network of local and specialist advisors across NSW, providing mobile, independent and face-to-face business advice

·       Advisors with experience and knowledge to tackle a range of issues from business planning and marketing strategy to finance access and business structure

·       Skills training in workshops, seminars and events to help businesses with the next step

·       Specialist support from new digital and creative industries experts

·       Support for disrupted industries

·       Assistance for businesses affected by emergencies and natural disasters

The NSW Department of Industry will oversee the Government’s $30 million four-and-a-half year Business Connect program that builds on the strengths and success of the award-winning Small Biz Connect program, which supported nearly 40,000 small businesses since it began in 2012. The program ends on 31 December 2016 to make way for Business Connect.  For more information on Business Connect visit:
