Boost for Inner West’s small businesses

Tuesday, 2 October 2018

Inner West Council is supporting four Small Business Month events taking place through October.

The events are free to attend and are designed to help small businesses improve their productivity, grow their business, and engage with other businesses striving for similar goals.

Mayor Darcy Byrne was delighted at the interest from local business owners, who were quick to fill the registrations.

“Small businesses are what make the Inner West such a dynamic and creative hub, but they face a number of unique challenges,” he said.

“These events are aimed at helping business owners retain customers, maximise their marketing reach, and run a more sustainable practice.”
