Small businesses are big business to us (We <3 Small Business)

Small Business Festival Victoria

We’re excited to be partnering with Small Business Festival Victoria in 2016, because no matter how small – small businesses are BIG biz to us! 

As part of Small Business Festival Victoria, we’re hosting an Energy Efficiency Panel, where you can find out how to save money on your power bill and green your business at the same time. 

Come along at 10am on Friday 12 August. Get your free tickets now


The Small Business Festival Victoria is back in 2016, with over 450 free and low cost business events in Melbourne and Regional Victoria.

The largest festival of its kind in Australia, the festival is now in its eleventh year of bringing networking, training, mentoring, workshops and more to small businesses from all industries.

Their signature events returning this year include Small Business BIG Marketing – the largest networking event of the festival with close to a thousand attendees. This year the BIG lineup includes world-class keynote speakers Holly Ransom, Jason Fox and Craig Davis. Each year, hundreds join in the networking sessions (run by Yvonne Adele and Toby Travanner this year), or make use of the free mentoring sessions by the Small Business Mentoring Service, and for the first time, the Australian Marketing Institute.

Also returning is the popular Small Business Bus, which will be parked at Fed Square for a week in late July before travelling throughout Victoria providing free business advice to people; and the Meet the Experts marquee at Fed Square, that will connect people with government regulators, or to get free advice from industry experts.

The Small Business Festival also extends to Regional Victoria with festivals in many regional centres, as well as the Festival Roadshow – the signature networking dinner – which features digital guru and futurist Chris Riddell.

Even if you can’t make it to any of the events in person, you can still join one of the Free Webinars from the comfort of your home office. And don’t forget to visit their Festival Hub at Donkey Wheel House in Melbourne too, with loads of free or cheap workshops.
