The Enterprising Program

The Enterprising Program is a community strengthening and employment generation project piloted in Wyndham City in Melbourne. The program stimulates and nourishes the start-up environment. It unearths business talent, targeting residents with well-developed business ideas or existing early-stage businesses.

These emerging entrepreneurs participate in a 14-week Business Start-up Intensive (BSI) designed to instil practical business skills, knowledge, networks and confidence.

The Enterprising Program will be of particular interest to councils wanting to:

  • enhance social cohesion and economic prosperity in their municipality
  • attract and support residents who have an entrepreneurial spirit and the potential to become future local business leaders
  • give local business start-ups a greater likelihood of surviving
  • generate employment opportunities, and
  • enrich existing council services and networks for small business.
