Small Business Week Grants Program

Funding support to Queensland Small Business Week events

Posted on 22.02.2019

The Small Business Week Grants program provides funding support to Queensland individuals or organisations who are seeking to host their own event as part of Queensland Small Business Week (QSBW) 2019 from Monday 27 May to Friday 31 May 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.

Available funding
