A pilot programme designed to assist veterans and their partners looking to establish their own business was launched by RSLWA in the Co-working Space at ANZAC House this week.
The free programme, which has links to industries and is supported by the Small Business Development Corporation, is tailored to veterans and their partners.
The first session on Monday, 25 July took participants through the ‘must have’ and ‘might needs’ required when setting up a new business.
RSLWA new CEO Vince Connelly dropped in on the session to get an understanding of what the participants sought to gain from the programme.
“Veterans bring amazing skills and attitudes back to society, and to the workforce.” Vince said.
“These sessions are tailored to help harness veterans’ energy by providing guidance and support to their new business endeavours. It’s also helping us showcase the amazing new co-working spaces and resources in Anzac House”.
The next Small Business Support sessions are scheduled for Monday, 15 and 29 August at 1.30pm.
