Event Details

 

Some of the state’s biggest business success stories were started by people newly arrived to Victoria from all over the world. If you are an asylum seeker, refugee or migrant with a business idea, this essential planning workshop will prepare you for the best chance of business success.

Get to grips with everything you need to know about Australian business culture and starting a business in Victoria so you can walk away ready-prepared with a clear vision of your next steps to turn your bright idea into a business reality.

There are no guarantees in business, but often it’s what you do before you get started that will ensure those vital first steps are on the right path for the best chance of success in your new home country. 

This practical three and a half hour workshop will expand your knowledge of Australian business culture and regulations. Led by an experienced small business operator with real-life know-how and lots of insight to share, you will also meet other emerging business owners in your area.

Find out how to plan, prepare and test your business idea, step by step, in a small group setting that will equip you to make informed decisions about what you need to do next to minimise the risks and make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead. 

Come away armed with practical tools and templates, expert tips and advice, and a head start on where to access the right support and resources in future. 

Includes a free follow-up one-on-one mentoring session with an experienced small business mentor who will tailor advice and information for your individual circumstances. 

Get ready to take your business from idea to reality and onwards to success at this essential Small Business Victoria workshop, one of many that have helped businesses get started in Victoria for more than 10 years.
