About Australian Business Champions

Australian Business Champions is an advocacy group dedicated to supporting the SME sector by raising the profile of the women who work behind the scenes in their family business (ABCs).

We believe it’s simply not acceptable that the oldest and largest group of business women in this country continues to remain invisible, unrecognised, unsupported and nameless. And we believe it’s time to make it right!

Through information, education, advocacy and service, we seek to raise awareness of the essential role Australian Business Champions play in small business the SME sector, and the major contribution they make to the economy.


Our Aim

To achieve appreciation through recognition for the enormous contribution supporting wives and life-partners of SME business operators make to the the SME sector and the Australian economy.


Our Mission

To in all ways champion, promote, support and empower the wives and life-partners who work behind-the-scenes in their family business.

The ABC Contribution

Australian Business Champions

Australian Business Champions (ABCs) are the true unsung heroes and champions of the small business sector.

Their contribution is astronomical, pumping millions of hours of free or cheap labour into the SME sector every year. All this despite the fact they receive no recognition, support, acknowledgement or public appreciation from the very governments, big business and private sector their contribution supports.

With over 2 million small businesses in Australia, it’s been estimated there could be as many as 850,000 ABCs nationally. Most are women, and most help their family business in one way or another. We’ve surveyed many ABCs trying to understand the main ways they contribute to their family business. The result – it seems there are as many ways of being an ABC as there are ABCs!

Some ABCs work as Jill-Of-All-Trades in their family business, while also providing support and encouragment to their spouse or life-partner. Some ABCs contribute full-time hours for little or no wages. Others don’t work directly in the family business, choosing instead to take on more household and family duties, freeing their spouses time to conduct more business. We’ve spoken to other ABCs who don’t work directly in their family business, choosing instead to take outside employment which generates revenue which helps support their family during the fledgling years of starting a small business.

The SME sector leans heavily on the hundreds of thousands of ABCs who pour millions of free labour hours into the Australian economy every week. Without those free hours the wheels would probably fall off our economy. We believe that a contribution of this size demands recogniton, support, a title and even a national celebration day. And we are committted to achieving those, but we’re going to need help!
