If you are thinking about starting a business, no matter what stage you’re at, we can give you a helping hand.

Firstly, we help you find your personal strengths and assess your skills and abilities. If your business idea is also a passion of yours, it is easier. We can then look at your idea, and work out the strategy to turn that idea into income.

We can provide one on one mentoring, advice or coaching along with small group workshops run by local business owners.

We are hosting inspirational speakers, developing a resource bank for small business, and creating opportunities to build your connections so your business is a success.

This service is open to anyone in Far North Queensland (North of Ingham, South of Daintree, including the Tablelands) and importantly is offered at no charge – so take the first step with the confidence and support of our Entrepreneurship Facilitators & experienced business mentors.

There is no better time to start a business in Australia, and with modern technology.

Even the boldest dreams can be realized from regional areas.

Through the Entrepreneurship Facilitators initiative (funded by the Federal Department of Employment), Y(E)P Cairns has someone you can talk to.

Whether it’s just to ask a couple of questions over the phone or have a couple of meetings with, our Entrepreneurship Facilitator will help demystify how you can start your own business, and help you prepare yourself to launch your business, and yourself into self-employment.

Book in with the Entrepreneurship Mentors for a one-on-one session or contact our office.
