About Us

SmartCompany is Australia’s premier publication for growth businesses and entrepreneurs seeking information, advice, news and ideas to help them succeed.

We connect with our readers in a number of ways: via our website, our social media channels, our free daily newsletter and Weekend Smarts, and our subscriber-only content in SmartCompany Plus.

Publishing must-read content every day since 2007, SmartCompany employs a team of passionate and informed journalists who work tirelessly to keep readers engaged and in-the-know, and a commercial team committed to delivering relevant, high-performing content marketing and advertising solutions for its commercial partners.

SmartCompany is driven by a vision to see Australian business boom, and it does this by encouraging curiosity, courage and a genuine spirit of collaboration.

As well as our team of journalists, we work with contributors from around the world, and are always on the lookout for smart, informative and engaging content on a range of subjects relevant to our audience. If you would like to discuss contributing to SmartCompany as an authority or influencer in your space, email our team at news@smartcompany.com.au.
