People thinking of starting a business in Wyndham are being reminded that help is available

Wyndham City offers free business training to people considering opening a business or who are in the early stages of operating one.

Wyndham City’s Future Focused Economy portfolio holder Cr Walter Villagonzalo said there are many things potential business owners can gain from the support being offered by Council.

“Opening a new business can be a daunting experience. A lot of time, energy and investment is required to make your vision successful, which is why the support available through Council is so important,” Cr Villagonzalo said.

Council offers free business training, along with a range of training opportunities throughout the year with the 2018 training sessions covering everything from how to get started to legal essentials.

“The sessions are part of Council’s annual business training calendar and in most cases, are offered on a voluntary basis by other local businesses,” Cr Villagonzalo said.

“If you need some help getting your business off to a great start, I encourage you to look no further than your local Council.”

Local firm Crowe Horwath will present this year’s first training session, Starting or Buying a Business—What You Need to Know, on Friday, 2 February.

All sessions are free and bookings are essential. For more information visit
