Small Business Smart Business
While there are some great resources available online, and a number of local organisations offering seminars and information for small business, tracking down the best advice can be difficult for busy small business managers.
In a recent survey of small businesses in Geelong, 91% of respondents said there was a need for a ‘one-stop-shop’.
In response, Ausindustry have awarded funding to the Geelong Chamber of Commerce Small Business Smart Business Program to coordinate existing resources and fill gaps in information and services to help small businesses in the region start, operate and grow more efficiently.
As a ‘one-stop-shop’ for small business in the City of Greater Geelong, SurfCoast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe and the Golden Plains Shire, Small Business Smart Business provides access – at no cost or low cost – to a suite of local advisory services, business mentoring, seminars and workshops, tailored to meet the needs of emerging and established small businesses.
