A new wave of Federal Government funding is set to provide entrepreneurs and small businesses in Central Queensland with more advice and support.

$770,000 has been injected into Queensland’s Bundaberg Business Enterprise Centre (Bundaberg BEC) as part of the Australian Small Business Advisory Services (ASBAS) Central Queensland National Interest Initiative.

“The Abbott Government allocated the new funding after identifying the Business Solutions round enabled the Bundaberg BEC to provide advisory services in Bundaberg, Fraser Coast and Gympie, but were still much needed in Gladstone, Rockhampton and Mackay,” Small Business Minister Bruce Billson said in a joint media release with Ken O’Dowd, Member for Flynn, Michelle Landry, Member for Capricornia, and George Christensen, Member for Dawson.

“The Bundaberg BEC will use the new funding to hire two business advisers to help start-ups and established small businesses in these areas through workshops and one on one sessions on: funding avenues and financial analysis; building your business; making the most of your talent and team; management capabilities; digital engagement implementation.”

The funding boost has resulted in a rise to the number of small business advisory services throughout local government areas of Mackay, Isaac, Livingstone, Rockhampton, Woorabinda, Central Highlands, Gladstone and Banana.

The Government says the new initiative, together with the 2014 ASBAS Business Solutions round of funding, brings the total Abbott Government funding commitment to business advisory services delivered in Queensland to $3.47 million.
