Starting Your Business in Victoria for Migrants

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. From Small Business Victoria, 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.
