Starting and Supporting a Small Business      


This week – October 20 – 26 – is Small Business Week, and we’re taking this opportunity to celebrate all of our Members and Future Members who are (or are aspiring) small businesses owners.

Over 99% of businesses are small to medium-sized, and we hope you’re very proud to be one of them!


If you’re an established small business, check out these timeless resources we shared in partnership with BDC during last year’s Small Business Week:

Thanks to BDC we shared an e-book for each day of the week during Small Business Week. We love these resources so much that we wanted to share them again! There is truly something for everyone within this content, aimed at delivering a ton of excellent resources to give you and your staff an edge on the competition:

MONDAY – Boost your Sales with Online Marketing

TUESDAY – Social Media, a Guide for Entrepreneurs

WEDNESDAY – Labour Shortage: Here to Stay 

Tools from your Chamber:

THURSDAY – Master your Cash Flow

FRIDAY – Profiting from Technology


Perhaps you’re aspiring to start or grow a small business and you’re keen to find out more?

Check out these quick links which give you the need-to-know:

We also have an entire page dedicated to resources for YOU, including a step-by-step of exactly what you need to get up-and-running! Take a look.


If you’ve got this far (thank you for reading!), why not pause now to show a #smallbiz some love this #SBW2019; go and comment on one of their posts, make sure you’ve ‘liked’ and ‘followed’ their pages – and better still – you could create a post on social media to give them some love.

By supporting a #smallbiz, it not only benefits our economy but allows us to reinvest in our local community! So go ahead and don’t forget to use #iheartsmallbiz so that we can see what you’ve shared!
