Garden helps businesses grow

With the wealth of knowledge available at our fingertips and access to a huge range of supportive services, there has never been a better time to start a business - and Frankston has been named one of the leading places in Victoria to make that happen.  The launch of the inaugural Big Small Business Expo combines the essential ingredients required for a successful start-up.  

Jo Schutt and Emily Jones had been running their separate businesses for several years before joining forces to create The Garden in Frankston and both agree there is nothing more effective in terms of growing a business than face-to-face networking and authentic relationship-building.  Their vast experience in events and passion for business development has lead them to create Frankston’s first large-scale event where local start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs could find inspiration, discover innovative business tools and potential businesses owners with whom to collaborate.

The Big Small Business Expo is on March 22 at Functions by the Bay in Frankston and will include an expo with spaces for 50 sponsors and exhibitors, a conference with six high-profile keynote speakers and a networking event in the evening. The event would not be possible without the likes of GOLD Sponsors PWR Consulting Group - To join PWR & other high calibre businesses through sponsorship or exhibiting, or to purchase conference tickets visit
