Event description

Description

Do you have an amazing business concept? Are you looking to expand and grow your existing business? Are you having trouble getting your idea off the ground? Then you need to get involved in our Small Business Development project - ‘The Trading Ground’. If selected, you will battle it out for prime Wangaratta business real estate, rent-free for one year!

10 participants will be chosen to undertake a range of business workshops through Councils Small Business Development Program. Once completed a ‘Shark Tank’ inspired event to be held 12 May 2018, will see each business pitch their idea to a panel of experts to win a retail location at The Co-Store, Wangaratta.

Council will help grow and cultivate your business development skills to realise your dream of running your own successful small business. Your differentiation in business offering and enthusiasm will get you over the line and ahead of the competition. The aim of this project is not only to offer Small Business Owners a chance to grow and develop their ideas but to ensure the Wangaratta CBD has a variety of retail offerings. You must have a solid business idea you are willing to commit to for a minimum one year.
