As of March 2020 we are proud to be mentors for the Australian Small Business Advisory Services Digital Solutions initiative, offered by the Melbourne Innovation Centre to businesses across Victoria.

Wish you could just talk to an online business expert?

You’ve come to the right place.

Access up to 3 hours of one-on-one mentoring

Small businesses don’t always have the budget to access training and programs. And sometimes, all you need is a couple of hours with a business professional to set you right.

Digital Solutions Mentoring is open to all eligible small businesses in Victoria. The service is simple: for $44 you get access to our professional business mentors, as well as workshops, webinars and online courses — all of which covers websites and selling online, social media and digital marketing, small business software and online security, and data privacy.
