Who’s Ampjar and why are we doing this?


Ampjar is a collaborative marketing platform. We believe in a world where small brands thrive and work together to grow.

One of our team members is based in Newcastle and is a huge advocate for the Hunter Region business scene. We know the struggle that so many small businesses are going through and after a lot of internal lobbying, we are supporting this campaign because we are now convinced that your region could be better than anywhere else in the world to be able to team-work your way out of this.

We want to prove that with a little help, communities can and will lift up the businesses that they love!
