Join us every Thursday in Cairns for a free NEIS business information session, 11 am – 12 pm at 11a-15 Sheridan Street.

Learn about the help available to budding entrepreneurs looking to make their mark in 2018. Each year thousands of new businesses kick off with support from the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS).

Training Connections Australia (TCA) is committed to assisting new businesses to succeed, providing practical business start-up support and ongoing mentoring.

TCA National Training Manager, Amanda Sophios, said the new year provided the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in starting their own business to make their dreams a reality.

“Many people reflect on their goals early in the new year, commonly vowing to make changes to improve their work prospects and financial position. We’d like to help those people who have a great idea for a business, but aren’t sure where to start,” she said.

“Running a business can be daunting and a lot of hard work, but the benefits of flexibility, doing what you love, and personal satisfaction are incredibly rewarding. We have a strong track record supporting businesses to thrive, and look to make 2018 our best year yet.”

NEIS is available at no cost to eligible participants who can work in their own business at least 35 hours per week. The Scheme provides training and mentoring and may attract some income support.

NEIS is part of the jobactive program, an initiative of and funded by the Australian Government.
