Small business operators in the Kangaroo Flat area will be able to access support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits on Wednesday, 26 September 2018.

The Victorian Government doubled its mobile support for small business in 2015, with a second Small Business Bus delivering valuable advice to towns and suburbs across Victoria for the past two years.

The bus service provides advice from small business mentoring specialists skilled in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. These experts have extensive experience in operating small businesses and in senior business management roles.

In 2017 more than 1,180 small businesses accessed free on-board mentoring, while a further 4,980 received assistance from information officers.

This year’s touring program will take information and services to towns across the state, benefiting businesses that may not have the time or resources to otherwise access the available support.

The Small Business Bus will be located in Lansell Square car park, 267 High Street, Kangaroo Flat, VIC 3555 from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday, 26 September 2018.

Free mentoring sessions on board the bus are limited and bookings are essential. For more information or to book a session, visit or call Small Business Victoria on
13 22 15.
