Help is on the way!

Helping-your-business-adapt

Throughout the pandemic, BizHub Maroondah have reached out to impacted businesses with the offer of fully subsidised expert advice to ensure that you are supported through this challenging period and emerge stronger on the other side.

As Victoria's restrictions continue to change, we've expanded this business support program available to Maroondah based businesses.

The expert advice service is now inclusive of additional business support, such as:

> Exploring options for business hibernation
> Assisting to determine other markets your business could try to serve
> Assessing applicable marketing strategies and platforms for your business
> Navigating the legalities of a changing business environment
> Providing links to specialist support services

Bookings can be made via the online booking system and selecting an available time with a business expert.

An initial appointment will be arranged with one of our business experts, who will then make referral to specific business services such as legal or human resources organisations.

The program includes up to three 30-minute (3 x 30-minute) sessions with a business expert, and or specific support professional. If your business would like to proceed with additional support, this arrangement will need to be via private engagement.

Whilst advice is provided based on the information supplied during the business expert session, Maroondah City Council is not responsible for the instruction or outcomes delivered as part of this session.
