The Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses (GFSB) is a campaigning pressure group, which exists to protect and promote the interest of all small business.
Formed in 1996, the GFSB is now the largest organisation representing the business sector in Gibraltar. The GFSB is a non-profit organisation where funds are raised through members’ subscriptions and donations. It is an independent body with no affiliations to any political party, and its main role is to maintain constant pressure at Government level to ensure that the voice of the small business is heard. The GFSB is a member of the European Small Business Alliance. This organisation was launched in November 1998 and Gibraltar was invited to join as a Founder Member, together with the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Austria and France. As this organisation will work closely with the EU Commission in Brussels, the GFSB will have a unique opportunity to keep abreast of the workings of the Commission and make their own representations through the Board. GFSB members enjoy the following benefits: Free Legal Advice & Business Start-up Advice, Free Training Courses, Free Monthly Breakfast clubs & networking opportunities, numerous business events, Advice on European Funding, ISO Funding. Help with ISO 2001-2008 Quality Standards.
