Bayside is a great place to start your business. Find our more about establishing a business from these organisations.
Bayside City Council in collaboration with Box Hill Institute - Business Enterprise Centre (Box Hill BEC) is now offering the business community of Bayside with an advisory service. The Bayside Business Advisory Service (BBAS) is available as a crisis response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact that it is having on our local economy.
The BBAS will be an opportunity for business owners to confidentially discuss any issues and to start prioritising actions moving forward. During the session you will receive information on government assistance available and also discuss hibernation, where this is an option for your business.
Are you a local business owner or someone preparing to venture out and start your own business? Bayside offers free one-on-one business mentoring sessions through the Small Business Mentoring Service, where you can discuss roadblocks or seek advice and support from experienced business mentors at any stage of your journey. Mentoring sessions are available monthly at various locations around Bayside.
