Helping your business grow

The City of Sydney offers a range of programs and seminars that can help your business to grow.

The City runs a series of seminars aimed at small- and medium-sized enterprises and tech startups. Attending the seminars is not only a chance to hear advice from experts in their fields, it is also a great way to network with other business owners and entrepreneurs. These incisive seminars offer tactical advice, resources and a chance to meet like-minded business people.

Your business can also benefit from a number of accessible programs that the City supports. These include:

  • Mentoring opportunities to provide expert advice and assist with business skills development.
  • Business awards to celebrate successful businesses and entrepreneurs in our local area.
  • Crime prevention advice to help city businesses protect themselves against retail crime.
