Small Business Day is taking place on Saturday 28 October 2017.
It is a statewide movement.
It is a 'Think Small First' event to raise awareness about small business in Western Australia.
It is about celebrating our passionate entrepreneurs, butchers, mechanics, artists, accountants, gardeners, interior designers, foodies, personal trainers (must stop... we could go on and on).
Our small businesses are at the heart of what makes our local communities great. We know, without small business, a community doesn't thrive. Without small business, our economy would not survive. Small business are a huge part of our life.
They are the lifeblood of Western Australia. There are more than 210,000 small businesses in WA which encompasses a massive 97 per cent of ALL businesses in the state. Small businesses employ nearly half of ALL jobs in Western Australia.
It's time to celebrate these things and remind ourselves to think small first.
It's a great time to get involved.
Think small first!
28 October 2017!
Step 1. On Saturday 28 October make the decision to do all your shopping at small businesses.
Step 2. Think beyond 28 October 2017!
The way we shop influences what is available to shop in. How do you normally shop? Small businesses keep the large and global corporations more competitive. When a small business disappears - so does our diversity and variety. We can't afford that. Instead of shopping at a large business, how about shopping at an independent store or a small business?

Let's get the buzz happening to encourage everyone to support small businesses.
Small business is at the heart of innovation and entrepreneurship. We need our next generation to be inspired to being their own boss. To create new ideas and learn how to run a business.
We have a series of arts and crafts activities on our resources page that you can download including some key (but fun!) information on what it like to run your own business.
