Lithgow’s small businesses are being offered a free helping hand in responding to business challenges and recovery from bushfire and other events.

Every business faces exposure to risk, whether it be a natural crisis such as a bushfire or flood, or man-made such as accident or illness.

Not having a plan in place in the event of an emergency can seriously compromise your ability to protect your business and act in times of crisis.

Lithgow City Council, in partnership with the Strengthening Business service, part of the Australian Government Entrepreneurs’ Programme, is providing free two-hour workshops to help you build resilience in your business and get it  back on track.

Workshops will be held in Lithgow and Wallerawang. Places may fill quickly, so please register if you wish to attend.

Bring your ideas, business plans and questions.

 About Entrepreneurs’ Programme

The Entrepreneurs’ Programme employs a national network of business experts to help Australian businesses to grow, innovate and commercialise to boost jobs, profits, exports and resilience. Under the Entrepreneurs’ Programme, Strengthening Business supports businesses in fire-affected communities to rebuild, transform and adapt following the bushfire crisis and resulting changes in their local marketplace. A facilitator will work with businesses to provide mentorship and develop a roadmap, identifying the immediate, medium and long-term challenges and opportunities. The Entrepreneurs’ Programme is funded and supported by the Australian Government and delivered in partnership with delivery partners. Business Australia is the delivery partner for NSW and ACT.
