The Queensland Government, through the Office of Small Business, is making Queensland the place for small business to start, grow and employ.
The Office of Small Business is giving small businesses the opportunity to learn, share and network via workshops and forums that focus on the challenges that small businesses face at all stages of their life-cycle.
