How it works

Business Connect support is fully funded by the NSW Government for eligible small businesses and individuals considering starting a new business in NSW. Customers can access up to 8 hours of free support per financial year. You'll simply need to:

  1. Find an advisor or event. Search for and choose the right advisor or event for you using keywords, location, business topic, date or industry. 
  2. Log in or create your account. You'll be prompted to log in to your existing MyServiceNSW Account or create a new one if it's your first time using Business Connect. 
  3. Submit your booking request or event registration. The advisor you have requested to book will contact you within one business day to arrange a suitable time for your session. If you've registered for an event, you'll receive a confirmation email with all the event details.
