SMALL BUSINESS BUS BRINGS ADVICE ON WHEELS TO HASTINGS

Small business operators in the Hastings area will be able to access support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits on Tuesday February 25th.

This is part of the assistance offered by the Andrews Labor Government, from cuts to payroll tax in to mentoring and advice services. This support for small business has contributed to Victoria being the best state in Australia in which to build a small business.

The small business bus mentoring specialists provide advice in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. These experts have extensive experience in operating small businesses and in senior business management roles.

In 2019, 1,176 small businesses accessed the small business bus’s free on-board mentoring. Small Business Victoria ran a further 264 practical workshops for small business owners, helping 4,561 businesses owners develop new skills.

This year’s program will take information and services to towns across the state, benefiting businesses that may not have the time or resources to otherwise access the available support.

The Small Business Bus will be located out the Front of the Hastings Library, 7 Hight St Hastings, from 10am to 4pm on 25/02/2020.

Free mentoring sessions on board the bus are limited and bookings are essential.

or call Small Business Victoria on 13 22 15.
