Ballina business brainstorming sessions prove worthwhile

KIDPRENEURS. It is not a term you hear about every day but it formed part of special business brainstorming sessions in Ballina this week.

NSW Small Business Commissioner, Robyn Hobbs OAM said the workshops, breakfast seminar and advisory sessions inspired creative minds and uncovered new opportunities for Ballina.

“We partnered with Club Kidpreneur to shape the next generation of budding business brains from Ballina Primary School,” she said.

“The students built their very own real-world business and launched their products at the market day,” said Ms Hobbs.”

The workshops supported entrepreneurs and small business owners in the creative industries sector and included: Marketing basics for creative people; top 10 tips with Monica Davidson and business advisory sessions aboard the small biz bus.

The breakfast forum focused on the future of the creative industries, where businesses benefited from a question and answer session, networking opportunities and key information on relevant services and support from key government agencies.

“Small business is the heartbeat of our local communities and the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner is devoted to making running a small business in NSW easier and more rewarding.

“Ballina is known as a creative hub, which is why we brought these events to empower businesses, start-ups and the entrepreneurs of our future to strengthen the business community, said Ms Hobbs.”
