From big idea to small business

8 March 2023|Advertisement, Community News| Off Comments off on From big idea to small business|

HAVE you got an idea for a business? Need help getting started?

The Workforce Australia Entrepreneurship Facilitator program, delivered by Business South in Greater Hobart and South-East Tasmania, can support you on your journey through the maze to self-employment.

An Australian Government initiative, the program offers free, practical and confidential guidance and support on all aspects of starting and running a small business – from registering business names, website domains and your ABN through to financial, marketing and strategic advice.

“When you’re playing with the idea of starting a business, it can be really overwhelming if you go online and search for support,” Entrepreneurship Facilitator Sharon Harvey said.

“The advantage of our program is that we offer the opportunity to talk to a real person in-person or online, brainstorm your idea and talk through the things you need to consider.

“Once we understand where someone’s at in their small business journey, based on their needs we can do further one-on-one mentoring with them or refer them to other relevant programs and services, remembering our services are completely free.”

The Entrepreneurship Facilitator program also offers monthly free workshops and information sessions.

In March we have some great in-person workshops and networking opportunities – all free.
