Are you in need of some business guidance?  Do you have a business idea but don’t know how to get started? 

Perhaps your business plan or financials are in need of a makeover, or you’re in need of specialist advice on government regulations, permits or legal advice and don’t know where to start. 

The City of Boroondara is proud to be able to support local businesses and business people, by offering free Business Mentoring. 

These one-on-one, confidential, one-hour sessions have been designed to assist new and established local business owners to address challenges and explore opportunities, and are suitable for anyone at any stage of their business. 

Sessions are held on the second Wednesday of each month and utilise accredited business mentors from Box Hill Business Enterprise Centre (BEC).

Last year saw the welcome return of popular mentor Richard Homersham, as the service’s regular business mentor.  Richard has an extensive background in small businesses. 

A business and management teacher, Richard was the recipient of the ‘Best Metropolitan Mentor/Advisor Award’ at the 2015 National BEC Australia Awards for Performance.
