Enterprise Plus Business Hubs – one launch, two re-brands

We were delighted to host stakeholders and guests for our Small Business Month Events which included the launch of our new Enterprise Plus Business Hub in Albury, the re-branding of a Business Hub in Wagga Wagga, and the re-branding of our Head Office and Business Hub in Queanbeyan.

With the Business Connect program funded by the NSW Government, we were pleased that all three local members of parliament were able to attend; Justin Clancy MP, Dr Joe McGirr MP, and Nichole Overall MP.

The Mayor of Wagga Wagga, Clr Dallas Tout also attended the Wagga Wagga event.

Enterprise Plus Chair Sue Whelan OAM, and CEO Jonathan McIlroy, welcomed guests at each event and provided an overview of the organisation.

As the largest Business Connect provider in regional NSW, we are exceptionally proud of having assisted more than 100,000 small businesses over 30 years.
