Last month, we celebrated the first birthday of Getting Aussie Business Online--as well as the news that more than 50% of Australia’s small businesses are now online. That’s something to cheer about, but it still leaves nearly half of Australia’s 1 million SMBs sitting on the sidelines of the digital economy.

That’s why we’re pleased that Council of Small Business of Australia (COSBOA) has announced they’ve joined the party by becoming an official supporter of the movement. Their support will enable the program to reach small businesses in COSBOA’s network of organisations and educate them about the importance of being online.

Small businesses are a vital part of our economy and communities. Together with MYOB, we’re looking forward to working with COSBOA to help businesses across Australia make the most of the web.
