Small Biz Connect – Mosman
What is Small Biz Connect? – A chance to look at your business from the outside in
Small Biz Connect is a program that accelerates small businesses to economic sustainability, delivering growth and employment for NSW. With a commitment to outcomes, Small Biz Connect will help you to develop the skills you need to not only survive but to thrive. Small Biz Connect is a practical program which links you with our experienced business advisors, who help you plan your business’ success.
As part of Small Biz Connect, business advisors will take you, the small business operators, through a business diagnostic tool to analyse your situation in an easy, efficient way. The advisor will then help you develop a simple action plan which identifies the skills you need to develop and the next steps for achieving your goals. Our focus is on outcomes and making sure small businesses really get the grassroots, face to face support they need to grow.

How does the program work?
