Frequently Asked Questions for Potential Small Business Champions
Who can join the Small Business Champions Team?
The Small Business Champions Team is for high quality, tried and tested, ethical small business specialists, service providers and advisors who genuinely care about supporting small businesses. To be accepted onto the team you must provide products, services or education specifically aimed at helping small business and you will need to be endorsed by a current Small Business Champion Team member and provide feedback from happy clients.
Who are the target audience for the Hub?
The target audience for the Small Business Hub are Australian small businesses with fewer than 20 employees as defined by the ABS.
- Non-employing business – include sole traders and partnerships with no employees in addition to the business owners.
- Micro-businesses – these businesses employ between 1 and 4 people.
- Other small businesses – these businesses employ between 5 and 19 employees.
There are currently over 2 million of these businesses in Australia and this number is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.
On the downside, statistics show that over 50% of them will fail within their first five years. that’s over a million shattered dreams.
The vision of the BB4G Small Business Champions Team is to cut that number in half and help half a million extra businesses survive and thrive.
What does it cost?
Small Business Champions pay an initial joining fee of $195 (GST incl). This covers the cost of your listing in the directory and Facebook Group with 50% going towards initial paid advertising to launch the Hub.
There will be no ongoing charge for listing, however Small Business Champions will be required to maintain a satisfactory feedback rating on the site to maintain their listing.
What are the benefits of being a Small Business Champion?

The Small Business Champions Hub is about making a real difference in the lives and businesses of new and struggling small business owners. We want to give them a safe place to come to get the services, resources, knowledge and support they need to thrive in an ever changing world.
