A new business support program in Brisbane is supporting entrepreneurial men to turn their ideas into reality.
Bizness Men, a free and practical program for men who need training, mentoring and support to start a successful micro-business, has been working with 11 emerging entrepreneurs. The participants recently finished a series of 9 intensive workshops to get their business concept off the ground, receiving coaching and mentoring from experienced business owners on how to start and sustain a small, creative or social enterprise.
