Start your own Business with Free Support from Holmesglen NEIS

Holmesglen NEIS - Broadmeadows, Sunbury and Craigieburn VIC

We offer a thorough way to design, plan and approach your business to minimise the risks, and maximise the money you can make in a realistic and interactive suite of programs.  Holmesglen NEIS have over 20 years’ experience in helping business start-ups.

This is a support service to help you launch your own new business.

It is not just "doing a course" although you may wish to gain the Cert. IV in New Small Business qualification, which can be completed over 12 months.

We offer two ways of helping you start a business:

You can do a 10-day workshop called "Explore Being My Own Boss" which helps you work through the questions you have about business ownership and consider your ideas, clarify options, and identify the actions involved.  You do not have to start the business after this program, but you of course may wish to do so.  It is about clarifying and knowing what is involved in having a business in Australia, and is currently done online with lots of interaction and time for discussion.

We also have the "New Enterprise Incentive Scheme" program  which helps you fully set up and start your business with support from us.  You will address legal, financial, operational and marketing planning, which then leads to on year of support through mentoring, monthly "business health checks" and possible NEIS Allowance support. There is also membership of our active and exclusive business alumni. 

We help you become successful!  This program is also being delivered online, and in a blended, self-paced version as well as being provided face to face locally later in 2021.

Free assistance is available to people wanting to start their own business through generous funding from Dept. Education, Skills and Employment to undertake these programs.

Call 1300 634 748 to find our more information.
