Low cost business mentoring is available to businesses operating within the City of Port Phillip through the Small Business Mentoring Service.

Mentoring provides micro, small and medium business operators with business advice, support and guidance to help them survive, succeed and grow.

This service is run by the Small Business Mentoring Service (SBMS), an independent not-for-profit organisation and is funded by Business Victoria .

Business mentoring can be valuable for:

  • people thinking about starting a business
  • newly established businesses
  • businesses wanting to grow
  • businesses facing challenging times

Mentors can assist business owners with:

  • working on their business, rather than just in it
  • improving marketing and business planning skills
  • helping to set objectives and direction
  • helping to increase sales and profits
  • bringing fresh thinking and identification of new opportunities
  • potential links into other organisations; and
  • resolving time management issues.

Cost is approx $100 per 90 min session.
