Over 5,500 businesses across the Blue Mountains have been impacted by the direct and indirect consequences of the Black Summer bushfires that damaged an estimated 80% of the Blue Mountains World Heritage area.
However, the local community has come together and demonstrated an incredible resilience and determination to rebuild.
Launching the BusinessBM Business Directory
We know that Blue Mountains small businesses want to connect with other businesses – and we want to help them to find each other.
Equally, the goal of BusinessBM.com.au, the region’s business network, is to connect small businesses with each other and to help them build their businesses.
It’s free to set up a listing in the directory and it’s the perfect place to find new collaborators, new employees, or even new business partners.
The directory also improves the business’ visibility for Blue Mountains residents looking for key products and services. It features everything from accountants to hairdressers, bike shops to cafes.
In addition to the business directory, the BusinessBM.com.au website now includes useful links and resources covering resilience, mental health and wellbeing, and networking. These website enhancements offer support for local business owners and operators to establish their own local networks, to connect and share ideas and to provide them with the tools to help them grow.
