Granting $60,000 worth of wishes to Australian Small Businesses launches new ‘Small Business Buddy Program’

Sydney, June 9, 2014: BizCover, Australia’s leading online small business insurance service, this month launches their first program designed to

BizCover Founder and Managing Director Michael Gottlieb has dedicated $60,000 over the next year towards the new Small Business Buddy Program (, in a feel-good mission to give back to the small business community who they service.

“Our success is due to the small business community, who have over the past seven years embraced our online insurance services over more traditional methods of buying insurance,” said Gottlieb, who adds BizCover have 25,000 small business customers across 2,000 plus occupations ranging from dog walkers to hairdressers to café owners and IT consultants.

“The Small Business Buddy Program is just one way we aim to give back to that community, to thank them for their support. For many small businesses the simple things many larger companies would take for granted, such as a new laptop or scanning equipment, will make a world of difference to a small business in terms of resources, staff morale and the bottom line.”

From June 2014 for the next 12 months, a wish will be granted by every fortnight in the form of a specific product or service valued at up to $2,000. Wishes can be made by any small business with twenty employees or less. Businesses must have a valid ABN to apply but don’t need to be an existing BizCover customer to make a wish.

“It is so encouraging to see a business like BizCover demonstrate their support for the small business community with this fantastic program,” said John Todd, Chairman of BEC Australia.

“There are so many small businesses who could do with a helping hand and the Small Business Buddy program will provide the opportunity for businesses to have their wish granted. I encourage all small businesses to make a wish as it could make a positive difference in their daily life.”

Wishes can be submitted online via and the first winner will be announced the week of 16 June.
