Business owners in the Latrobe Valley, or those considering starting businesses, can now access a free, flexible and confidential tailored support service.
The Business Support Service is a new pilot program which will see a team of local Concierges based at the Latrobe Valley Authority, Latrobe City, Wellington and Baw Baw Shire Council offices.
The expert team of concierges are available to help local businesses navigate the services on offer and follow up to ensure they are getting what they need.
The new program will connect businesses with a range of services by partnering with government departments and organisations, including:
- GROW Gippsland
- Rural Financial Counselling Service
- Kinaway Chamber of Commerce
- Victorian Small Business Commission
- Small Business Victoria
- Small Business Mentoring Service
- Victorian Chamber of Commerce
- Regional Development Victoria.
The future look of the Business Support Service will be shaped by feedback from local business owners/operators during the pilot program.
