The Small Business Association of Australia

Launching your own business is never easy. It is like starting a new chapter in your life. And to start a new chapter, sometimes, you have to take a leap of faith and get out of your comfort zone. For some of us, doing these things is not exactly easy. But what if there is someone to lend you a helping hand and offer you solid support as you navigate your way towards becoming a successful and prolific business owner?

What is the SBAA and How Can We Help?

The Small Business Association of Australia (SBAA), understands how challenging it is to start your own business. This is one of the things that continues to motivate us to provide support and assistance to owners of small and medium enterprises or SMEs to help them succeed in their chosen endeavour.

The Small Business Association of Australia is one of the fastest growing and widely recognised organisations in the country specialising in supporting and advocating for the SME. We firmly believe that SMEs are making significant contributions to the growth of the national economy and are a vital component of Australia’s future. We continually see that owners of small and medium-sized businesses are not receiving the support and recognition they deserve, so we have taken up the challenge to help them in every way we can.

Setting up a small business in Australia is challenging at best, but with the assistance of SBAA, SMEs can grow and secure their future.

Connect and Establish Strong Working Relationships with Like-Minded People.

SBAA regularly organise networking events that will enable members to connect and foster relationships with other business owners on a local, national, and international level.

Better Educate Business Owners.

We believe that education and knowledge are key ingredients of a successful business, so apart from organising networking events, we also host educational events and learning programs for our members. We provide various learning resources and tools to help members enrich their knowledge of running a successful enterprise.

Be Heard.

SBAA serves as the “voice” of SMEs by expressing their concerns to the government. We also seek the assistance of key stakeholders on their behalf to encourage policymakers to create economic policies that will benefit and help SMEs. The launch of the SBAA Think Tank focuses on the fields of research, education, policy, and practice for small business in Australia.

From the Founder

Welcome to Small Business Association of Australia,a young and dynamic organisation that specialises in the support of the SME (small and medium enterprise) sector.

SBAA is Australia’s premier small business organisation providing professional advice to entrepreneurs who are either thinking of going into business or who are already in business.

We are a highly active group that aims to bring to small business the tools they need to succeed, while at the same time working to remove the shackles imposed on the sector by governments at all levels.

One of my great joys is providing guidelines to budding young entrepreneurs trying to make their mark in the business world and then tracking their road to success.

However, many times I have seen vibrant and innovative businesses suffer due to the constraints imposed by the indifference of bureaucracy and the ever increasing web of red tape they must navigate to keep their doors open.

We understand that running a small business is tough. The business owner
has to be a Jack of all trades, managing tasks that a bigger business would either outsource or employ specialists to manage.

Yet small businesses account for more than half of the jobs created in the private sector and their survival is integral to the nation’s economic health.

Our core objective is to minimise the rate of failure in small business and to promote the world’s best practice in business through our action plans.

If you are a small business owner, I would urge you to join SBAA and help
us achieve a better deal for the millions of small business owners across

Kind regards
