Small businesses, individuals and organisations are encouraged to apply for an inaugural Small Business Week Grant to host events during QSBW 2019.
Grants of up to $5000 are available to help deliver innovative events and activities that provide small businesses with the tools they need to thrive. Event hosts can increase their profile, enhance their own business and network with other small businesses in their region.
Don’t miss this opportunity! Online applications are now open and close on Sunday, 3 March 2019.
The objectives of the Small Business Week Grants Program are to:
- provide a platform for collective investigation of local small business community concerns and solutions specific to an area or locality
- empower local small business communities to come together to learn from experts and specialists in areas relevant to their sector or region
- enable local leadership in small business communities.
The fund will enable the individual or organisation to offset the costs incurred by delivering events and activities that provide transformative impacts for small businesses.
Funding of up to $5,000 (excluding GST) is available as a reimbursement for eligible individuals or organisations to host an event that creates an educational and/or collaborative community experience as part of QSBW 2019.
To be eligible the individual or organisation must:
- hold an event or activity during QSBW 2019, Monday 27 May to Friday 31 May 2019
