SBDC launches new 'starting point' for small business

The Small Business Development Corporation’s (SBDC) redeveloped business information centre at 140 William Street is a unique starting point for budding entrepreneurs.

Small Business Commissioner, David Eaton says small business owners make a significant contribution to the State’s economy, and the SBDC is keen to ensure that new business starters have all the information and guidance they need to start off on the right foot.

“The business information centre provides free and low cost workshops, and the opportunity for face-to-face meetings with experienced business advisers,” Mr Eaton said.

“Each week, we hold a free, two-hour Business Basics workshop providing the information you need to evaluate a business model and decide whether you have what it takes to run your own business.”

The centre also provides access to comprehensive market research information via IBISWorld, to help business starters test the financial feasibility of their ideas.

The SBDC is open Monday to Friday (except public holidays), from 8.30am to 5.00pm, and is easily accessible.
