“The City of Boroondara actively supports our business community and a range of our unique visitor destinations, including our markets and 54 local shopping centres - all great focal points for the local community and visitors alike,” said Councillor Healey.

“A broad range of business support services are on offer to local businesses, including networking events, specialist workshops, plus access to free business mentoring resources with accredited business mentors.”

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.
