Anyone who has ever considered starting their own small business will be able to find answers to all their questions during next month’s Small Business Festival.
The state-wide festival runs from August 1-31, and in Frankston the focus will be very much on start-ups, with Frankston City Council planning a series of workshops covering all aspects of getting a small business off the ground.
Start-Up Super Session (August 2) is the first workshop and will be split over two sessions (6-7pm and 7-9pm). Victoria’s Small Business Commissioner will provide tips on turning a great idea into a successful business, as well as the avoiding the traps of commercial disputes.
Marketing For Start-Ups (August 4) will include practical marketing applications, from brand selection and getting the basics right to first-time marketing as an investment and online strategies that work.
Commercialising Your New Idea (August 9, 6-9pm; August 11, 6-8.30pm) examines why many great ideas and inventions never graduate to a fully-fledged business. Over the two sessions, participants will be given tips on developing a strategy to take their idea to market.
Ten Free Things You Can Do Online For Start-Ups (August 23, 6-8pm) will teach you how to use 10 free online tools designed to make growing your business easier and more cost-effective.
