Available in the Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven, Southern Region Business Enterprise Centre promotes entrepreneurship and self-employment as valid employment options through the fully-subsidised Entrepreneurship Facilitator Services (EFS) Initiative, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business.

Are you an entrepreneur looking to start your own business or pivot an existing business to achieve viability?

If you are you will be pleased to know that Southern Region Business Enterprise Centre (SRBEC) is ready and able to assist you. SRBEC is proud to deliver the Entrepreneurship Facilitators program, with a focus on the Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven region, to support entrepreneurs and promote entrepreneurship and self-employment as valid employment options. The program is fully funded by the Australian Government through the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) – so the great news is it is free for entrepreneurs to access!

 

An experienced and professional Entrepreneurship Facilitator will provide practical assistance, support and mentoring, and where appropriate refer you to other specialised business support providers. Your Facilitator will work with you to develop a solid business model to mitigate the risk and maximise the success of your new business idea. We understand that being an entrepreneur can sometimes be a lonely journey – rest assured your Facilitator will be on hand to encourage you to progress with a viable business model that will ideally enable you to create your own job. The program will hopefully help you to realise your full potential by assisting you to:

  • Develop a robust business model that maximises the probability of success by aiming to get the business fundamentals right
  • Mitigate business risks and through experience avoid obvious pitfalls and apply best practice business methods
  • Alleviate the anxiety and uncertainty associated with the decision-making required when starting a new business

 

Clients of the Entrepreneurship program come from a diverse range of backgrounds and while there is a focus  to assist mature-age Australians, including those at risk of unemployment due to structural changes in the economy, the program will assist any individual wanting to start their own business.

 

Our Entrepreneurship Facilitator collaborates with regional stakeholders, industry organisations, chambers of commerce, councils, community, business and networking organisations and when appropriate refers budding entrepreneurs to reputable local providers of specialist business services specific to their needs.
