THE SPORTING LIFE
VICTORIAN small businesses will have
more access to low-cost professional
management advice from a team of more
than 100 private-sector mentors for the
next two years.
Minister for Innovation, Services and Small
Business Louise Asher recently announced
a new partnership agreement between the
Victorian government and not-for-profit
organisation Small Business Mentoring
"This new agreement invests more money
than ever before in the partnership
between SBMS and the government
agency Small Business Victoria and, in
turn, more businesses than ever before will
be assisted," Ms Asher said.
"The SBMS is comprised of highly
for small businesses
experienced business people with specialist
commercial skills who volunteer their time
to help other business people.
"The SBMS has been going for more than
25 years and since 2001 has mentored
more than 8500 business people.
"Under the new agreement, the SBMS
will deliver more than 4000 subsidised
mentoring sessions to more than 1900
businesses; including mentoring through
the Mobile Business Centre, which visits
regional and suburban commercial hubs,"
Ms Asher said.
"I encourage all small businesses to
think about the benefits of a mentor,"
said Parliamentary Secretary for Small
Business, Russell Northe.
"The SBMS can provide an experienced
and objective advisor to work on the
ground with a small business operator,
exploring better management practices
and pointing out potential opportunities
for growth," Mr Northe said.
"The SBMS service is of vital importance
in regional areas to further strengthen the
businesses in our rural cities and towns."
