With the Small Business Festival Victoria set to hit Melbourne in a few days, supporters of entrepreneurship Genesis Business Partnership have delved into the event’s itinerary and shared why budding entrepreneurs can’t afford to miss events such as this if they are shooting for success.
The Victoria State Government’s Small Business Festival is back again this year, offering over 400 events to the region’s small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs, with many being completely free to attend.
Outsourced sales and marketing firm Genesis Business Partnership is one of Victoria’s 541,000 small businesses and were thrilled by the decision to once again bring the Small Business Festival back to Melbourne. The firm is adamant that small businesses are catalysts for positive economic change, not only by creating a more diverse and accessible jobs market, but by also injecting money back into the local area and encouraging people to embrace a greater sense of community.
Within the sales and marketing community there is already a lot of support and guidance on offer to help aspiring entrepreneurs branch out on their own. Genesis Business Partnership for example, offers all their contractors a unique business opportunity, where they can attend skills workshops and national networking events in order to boost their entrepreneurial abilities. The firm also offers one-on-one mentoring from highly experienced leaders and industry advisors. However, whilst this may be the norm for those keen to pursue success, in outsourced sales and marketing Genesis Business Partnership are aware that not all entrepreneurs are so lucky and that shooting for success can often be confusing and isolating. As such the firm are hugely excited for the upcoming small business festival and are urging anyone with an interest in business to attend as many of the events as possible. After reviewing the line up on offer, the firm have shared some of their top picks from the festival below.
