The Greater Shepparton Small Business Festival will take place next month, providing inspiration, ideas and information for anyone starting or building a business.
The Greater Shepparton Business Centre partnered with this year’s Victorian Small Business Festival to host the events throughout August, also developed in partnership with a number of organisations from across the region.
The annual festival comprises more than 500 individual events held in venues throughout metropolitan, regional and rural Victoria.
Greater Shepparton will also host two events as part of the Women in Business week from August 14 to 20.
Greater Shepparton City Council’s director of sustainable development Johann Rajaratnam said the Shepparton Small Business Festival aimed to promote networking opportunities and improve the overall productivity and growth of small businesses in our region.
‘‘I encourage all small business owners to get involved in the festival and take the opportunity to hear from some experts in their fields or even just network with other small business owners,’’ Mr Rajaratnam said.
‘‘These types of events can be a valuable source of ideas to enhance and grow their businesses.’’
