Small businesses are vital to our economy and the NSW Government is committed to ensuring the small business sector is supported with a suite of measures.


The NSW Government’s new one-stop shop Women in Business Hub is now live.

The Hub will connect women to trusted resources including the Women’s Financial Toolkit and the Return to Work Toolkit which was designed to help women easily navigate reliable resources.

The Women in Business Hub will provide female business owners information on grants, funding, training education, networking, mentoring, mental health support as well as links to assistance  including:

  • Service NSW for Business Concierge, which can help with support and requirements across the NSW Government,
  • Business Connect which provides independent business advice including how to start, grow or
    relaunch a business,
  • NSW Small Business Commission which provides support, advocacy and mediation services, and
  • TAFE NSW’s Women in Business initiative, a fully subsidised online program for women who are looking to establish a micro business, a small business or who are operating or  growing a business.

The NSW Government has committed $16.5 billion across 10 years as part of the 2022-23 Budget to grow economic  opportunities for NSW women and to  support early childhood education and development. For more information go to
