Getting Down to Business 2017 Accelerator
Over the past three years, more than 120 young people aged 16-25 years have completed Getting Down to Business, a 10 month long Victorian Government funded youth entrepreneurship program for young people who have a business idea, a start up or an existing business ready to expand.
They have participated in webinars, roundtables, Stretch Days, coaching, mentoring and pitch sessions.
They've developed their ideas, built their start up or scaled their enterprise and they've learnt what it takes to run a successful business.
Getting Down to Business has changed for 2017!
Funding concludes on 30 June, 2017 so we're focusing on accelerating the growth of businesses owned by young people aged 16-25 years from across Victoria.

Not everyone lives in cities so access online webinars, resources and knowledge to help you grow your business when you need it.
