The program is an advisory service that aims to support small businesses to start, run, adapt and grow through a panel of suppliers and is set to run for three years beginning April 2022. It will include regional and specialist suppliers.

“Small businesses are the backbone of their communities and if we support them to stay in business and grow, they will create local jobs and grow our economy,” the Minister for Finance and Small Business, Damien Tudehope, said.

The providers will deliver business advice, events and tools customised to the needs of small and medium businesses areas across the state, to assist them in their recovery and their ongoing success.

Mr Tudehope said the NSW government was investing more than $30 million in the Business Connect program over four years, which will help drive our economic recovery as we reopen our economy.

“A recent evaluation found the Business Connect program to be highly successful, fulfilling a clear need and playing an important role in avoiding business failure,” he said.

Each current Business Connect provider was a small business or not-for-profit organisation that contracts to the NSW government. The current Business Connect services are in place until 31 March 2022.
