As the nature of work changes, business in Boroondara is evolving to include more self-employed, home-based businesses, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and those simply thinking about starting up a new venture.

In 2017, the City of Boroondara is offering a great line-up of business training events and workshops, networking opportunities, a free business mentoring service with accredited mentors, plus access to business resources and helpful links.

Entrepreneurship is not just for the young. There is an emerging trend of “SeniorPreneurs” — people over 50 starting a business, often for the first time. ‘SeniorPreneurs’ meet-ups are available to help senior entrepreneurs succeed in their business goals.

You can also connect with others through the Business Boroondara Network, with more than 2000 members from a diverse range of businesses. Networking events are a great way to enjoy social contact and link with other local businesses who may offer skills, goods and services to support the growth of your business.
