The City of Boroondara is inviting local businesses to apply for this year’s Small Business Sparks grant, with applications now open until 24 March 2019.

The grant provides financial assistance of up to $3,000 to help local business owners turn their bright ideas into commercially successful products or service offerings.

Mayor of Boroondara, Cr Jane Addis said Council is proud to support the local business community.

“I am delighted that this program offers opportunities for business to grow. The Small Business Sparks Grant provides an exciting opportunity to improve, build on or invest further.”

Last year, the program funded five local business initiatives which drove economic growth, celebrated local talent and encouraged greater visitation to Boroondara.

Owner of Panache Flowers Richard Eden said the grant has greatly benefited his business.

“We now have the infrastructure we need to meet our customers’ demand for floral workshops. We’re excited about our new floral art classes which include pansy classes, corporate and hen’s party workshops, and tropical flower arrangements.”

To apply for the grant or for information about how the grant can help your business, visit Small business sparks. Alternatively call the Economic Development Team on 9278 4879.
