Business Connect aims to support small businesses to startup, create jobs through growth, help established small to medium enterprises (SMEs) become sustainable and increase business confidence across NSW.”
Business Women of the Year Nominee
Recent nominee of NSW Business Woman of the Year, Jackie Dujmovic has experienced the Business Connect program first hand for their business, Hover UAV. She supports and applaudes the idea of one on one mentoring for small businesses starting out. “The prospect of starting up a new business can be a daunting one. There is a great deal of comfort knowing that you can access a resource that is independent, yet qualified in our backyard rather than having to travel into Newcastle. I like the fact that the Business Centre meets people where they are at – whether you are a long way into your planning for your small business or just starting out, the resources and help is available. It really gives small business the best chance of not only surviving, but thriving.”
Initial appointments can be made through contacting the Business Centre on Phone 02 4925 7700.
