Setting up a new business for the first time can be a daunting challenge. The E provides Government Funded assistance for new business startups.

Our Sarina Russo Entrepreneurship Facilitator will support you not just for the startup phase, but can also provide ongoing support and mentorship once your new business is underway. We help you expand your business knowledge and experience with access to:

  • practical assistance and support that will help you get things right, right from the start, to save you time and money
  • the most up-to-date information and advice about starting your own business to improve your management skills
  • an experienced mentor who can help you maximise your business performance, build your confidence, and develop your problem-solving and leadership skills
  • referral networks and links to relevant services to expand your business contacts and potential customer base

We currently deliver this program in the Ballarat, Moorabool, Golden Plains, Central Goldfields, Hepburn and The Pyrenees regions. 

To harness your potential

Paul Miller is our Entrepreneurship Facilitator for our delivery areas.

Since 2001, Paul has been helping people take their ideas from the concept stage to a fully operational business. Over his own career, he’s helped 1000’s of businesses to get off the ground in Melbourne, Ballarat and the surrounding regions. 

Paul has done it all. He has mentored, trained, run his own business and experienced first-hand the impacts of a changing labour market. His focus is on how to find and create solutions to overcome barriers that arise.

He’s also passionate about helping people who often believe their age limits their career options. Instead, Paul believes age provides a distinct advantage when starting a business.

As a strong networker, Paul has established connections across Ballarat that, as an Entrepreneurship Facilitator, will be highly beneficial for any individual mentored and supported by him.
