How I built an SME practice with the help of the Entrepreneurs' Programme

Tuesday, 13 July, 2021 | 4:00PM AEST

The Entrepreneurs’ Programme continues to be one of the best government-led business support initiatives in Australia. It aims to support businesses in the $1.5m - $100m turnover range that are in key growth industries to access excellent industry specialist advice from Government Growth Facilitators and, by providing matched funding grants of $20,000 for businesses to purchase advice to improve their business.

By supporting the programme and encouraging my clients to participate, I have been able to add enormous value to them and in turn, have built enduring relationships. I’d like to share how I have done it and offer suggestions on how you might boost your practice by providing outstanding support and advice to your clients.
