Support for Small Businesses
Did you know that the Sunshine Coast is home to more than 30,000 businesses who contribute to a strong and resilient economy that enables the region to grow as a great place to live, work and play?
At the Sunshine Coast Council we are committed to delivering the Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS) which is our region’s blueprint for economic growth and sets a goal to achieved a $33 billion economy by 2033. Council’s Local Business Support Team is committed to supporting micro and small businesses to establish and grow.
The Local Business Support Team connects start-ups and established businesses to relevant information and advice on starting a business, running a business, growing and expanding a business.
Setting up your own business can be an exciting time, but can involve a level of uncertainty and risk. Before you start, save yourself time and money by being aware of what’s involved in running a business.
The Local Business Support Team at Sunshine Coast Council works directly with local businesses to provide easy access to relevant information and offer the tools needed to successfully manage and grow their business on the Sunshine Coast.
Assistance can include:
• One-on-one client support meetings
• Workshops to increase business skills
• Key information dissemination
• Referrals and connections
• Access to specific market reports
