Become a job maker rather than job taker!
The era of the ‘job for life’ is drawing to a close, with increasing short term and contract arrangements, and there’s an accompanying trend in the growth of micro-businesses. Increasingly, people are designing ‘portfolio careers’ which include a small business component.
Between February and April 2017 there’s an opportunity in Moreton Bay region to fast-track the development of your new business, using a proven set of decision-making tools and expert advice and assistance. And you can apply now!
Startup Moreton Bay Region is an innovative set of fortnightly Saturday workshops, kicking off with an intensive ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ planning weekend in February. This program also includes informal group meetings and an online component.
The program was successfully delivered in Moreton Region in 2016 by trainers Edgeware Creative Entrepreneurship, and besides a new business, participants will take away a Certificate III in Micro Business Operations.
