Government fund for upskilling business owners

Grant Types #3: Upskilling business owners

Most small business owners find traditional training for learning new knowledge and skills time consuming and depending on the trainer sometimes too theoretical for the practical needs of a small business. This is where targeted coaching can be a great value. For eligible small businesses, the Entrepreneurs program’s stream called the Business Growth Services is an excellent place to start.

First, the eligible business works with an adviser or coach to identify and agree on the best paths to growing the business. Once completed, the adviser helps you identify other sources of support, financial and skill-building to help you implement strategies to capture the growth.
