The Active Around Australia business Exchange is your connection to local Australian businesses. The business exchange is interlinking the growing number of new local small businesses we are seeing in the Australia together with bigger businesses, more established corporates, in order to help Australian small to medium enterprises get to the next level. By making it easier for the small business community to understand and take advantage of the range of pledges on offer from big businesses, this site will open up a whole new world of opportunity to Australian entrepreneurs.

Small and Medium Businesses

The Business Exchange is about delivering game-changing opportunities to small businesses by posting pledges of meaningful commercial support from big business. These pledges could be offers of investment, or the sharing of intellectual capital and physical assets.

Corporate and Enterprises

Supporting and helping new Australian businesses to flourish and grow is necessary in order to maintain an overall healthy economy in Australia. Pledging to collaborate with, advise, finance, offer contracts to the wider small medium enterprises and local communities can lead to ideas generation, a robust supply chain and increased goodwill from suppliers – as well as a thriving economy.

Supporting Local Communities

Apart from business growth, generally speaking any business can breakthrough any unexpected barriers and open the door to supporting the local communities in their area through well-planned and joint corporate social responsibility programs as well. By working with the people in their local areas, business entrepreneurs can identify and assess which areas of their community can be improved and then put together some ideas, groups of people/volunteers, perhaps some fund-raising type of programs to help fund the local events taking place in their surrounding communities. By doing this, interestingly businesses often get that free exposure, more people get to know their products, brands and companies as well on a more personal level.
