More support for QLD SMEs

Eleven Queensland small businesses will get grant funding under the latest round of the Accelerate Small Business Grants Program.

Minister for Employment and Small Business Shannon Fentiman at the Sofi Spritz head office in Brisbane today announced these small businesses will receive assistance to engage with experts to help their business grow and create jobs.

“Small businesses are the engine room of our Queensland economy and investing in their growth leads to more local jobs,” Fentiman said.

“I am pleased to announce these grants will provide targeted assistance to support small businesses looking for advice to help them to grow and expand.

“Since the Palaszczuk Government came to office we have worked with business and industry to create over 143,000 new jobs in Queensland.”


Member for McConnel, Grace Grace said these grants are just one of the many ways the Palaszczuk Government supports Queensland small businesses to reach their full potential.

This announcement for the $88,000 grant brings the total number of businesses benefiting from the program to 64, with many businesses using funds to help them manage growth, implement business development plans and look to overseas markets.
