Local business support

Information for programs, business tools and resources available to support businesses.

The Sunshine Coast is home to over 33000 businesses which contribute to a strong and resilient economy, enabling the region to grow as a great place to live, work and play. The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy 2013-33 is designed as a blueprint for sustainable economic growth to capitalise on business opportunities nationally and in the global marketplace.

Council’s business development program is a service offered to small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and supports local business activity and innovation while also building the reputation of the region as a key investment location. Whether starting or scaling up a business, the local business development team works with businesses, chambers of commerce and industry groups to identify, connect and deliver initiatives that inform, educate and connect the region’s small and medium-sized businesses.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
