Now in its fifth year, the Women’s Micro Business Incubator will teach 10 economically disadvantaged women from the Liverpool area how to start their own business.
Since 2014, the Micro Business Incubator, run by Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections, has supported 45 women and launched 10 small businesses, with more in the pipeline.
Starting with a 12 week course, the women develop a name, logo, and business plan.
They are then guided through essential tools like public liability insurance, marketing, and money management.
Graduates receive a $500 start-up grant and ongoing mentoring on successful completion of the program.
Offering a range of products and services, the women are now in a position to grow their business selling online and through markets. In addition, participants can access main street retail space thanks to a new partnership with Liverpool City Council.
Established in 2014 with seed funding secured by Sydney Community Foundation from eBay, the Women’s Business Incubator is a proven model with demonstrated success.
