SMALL and medium sized enterprises in Bundaberg will have the chance to benefit from a new initiative that will give them the chance to win support for their business.

The Commonwealth Bank has announced the launch of the BetterBusiness Booster, an interactive online competition designed to help provide support for the profile and growth of businesses across Bundaberg.

The competition will encourage the Bundaberg public to get behind their favourite business and help them win, whether it be the corner shop, local butcher, travel agent or accounting firm.

Donna Dalby, Queensland general manager of the Commonwealth Bank, said the BetterBusiness Booster was a new and interactive initiative that would help to recognise and reward the role of small businesses across the country.

"Small businesses are the backbone of the Bundaberg economy, so it's important that we continue to support their growth and development," Ms Dalby said.

She said the BetterBusiness Booster would give small businesses in Bundaberg the chance to benefit from something special.

"Finalists will receive both a cash injection and a trip to Sydney to meet senior finance experts, with the winner rewarded with a one-year dedicated business coaching program as well as $10,000," she said.

Launching on the Commonwealth Bank's Business Facebook page, small businesses and the public are invited to nominate either a business they own, work in, or admire for a BetterBusiness Booster worth more than $30,000.

Nominations are open for the next three weeks, after which an expert judging panel will name five businesses as finalists.

All participating businesses are also invited to take part in a free business review, available through the nomination form.

To help the finalists further develop their business, each business will receive a featured profile and video hosted on the Commonwealth Bank Business Facebook page, a trip to Sydney to meet senior finance experts from the bank and a $1000 cash injection.

The public will then be invited to vote for the finalist they think most deserves the BetterBusiness Booster.

The business with the most votes will take home the grand prize of a $10,000 cash injection, 12 months of expert business coaching from a renowned independent small business expert and financial commentator Peter Switzer and a feature profile on the Commonwealth Bank Facebook page.

One lucky individual will also receive $10,000 simply by voting.

Ms Dalby said now was the time for Bundaberg businesses or their admirers to get their nominations in.

For more information and to nominate a business for the BetterBusiness Booster, visit the Commonwealth Bank Business Facebook page at facebook.com/commonwealthbankbusiness.

Nominations will be accepted until 5pm on Friday, May 4.
