QSBM Partnership Program
About the Partnership Program
The theme for Queensland Small Business Month (QSBM) 2021 is Bounce Back Better with the month focusing on connecting small businesses with information, initiatives and events to come back even stronger following the economic impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The QSBM Partnership Program aims to proactively sponsor initiatives or events that build the skills and knowledge of small business operators, and promotes networking and idea-sharing among Queensland's small business community.
