Home Sweet Home for Business
Have you got budding entrepreneurs in your local area who want to start a home based business, but don’t know how?
The NSW Small Business Commission has a new online resource with all they need to know about getting started, where to find help developing a business plan, requirements for hiring staff, accessing government grants and staying connected.
In October the Small Business Minister Damien Tudehope launched the resource Running a Home Business at the Home Based Business (HBB) Forum in West Lindfield which was co-hosted by the City of Ryde and Ku-Ring-Gai Councils.
The Commission developed Running a Home Business after surveying 460 home business owners - startups to industry ‘veterans’ of more than 10 years - to understand their challenges and identify what they need.
“We’ve listened to business owners who’ve told us loud and clear they need a one-stop-shop for information to help them set up and run their businesses successfully,” Mr Tudehope said.
“Home businesses are a growing trend for many independent professionals and a vital and growing niche of the NSW economy.”
