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.

Through our Entrepreneurship Facilitator, Southern Region Business Enterprise Centre provides practical assistance to support, mentor and encourage individuals to start a business as a way to create your own job and realise your full potential by

  • Checking the robustness of your business model
  • Alleviating the anxiety and uncertainty associated with the decision-making required when starting your new business
  • Mitigating your business risks by offering experience, knowledge and tools to avoid pitfalls and apply best practice business actions


EFS clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds and while we focus on mature-age Australians, including those at risk of unemployment due to structural changes in the economy, anyone wanting to start their own business in the Southern Highlands or Shoalhaven can access the services.


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