The Skills Network
One on one business advice for regional Startups, Shakeups, and Innovators.
The Skills Network is a chance for our Startups, Shakeups and Innovators to have access to our skilled regional Advisors.
If you are after either some specific advice, need some assistance to solve business challenges, want someone to brainstorm with or just someone to point you in the right direction, the Skills Network is for you.
Even better, you are able to access three free sessions through the Skills Network thanks to our local government partners.
The Skills Network also provides an opportunity for Advisors to share their skills and experience with local Startups and Shakeups to foster their business growth. Advising is a hugely rewarding activity for both Advisors and Participants.
“There is so much that can be learned and shared through this collaborative advisory model, from both Participants and Advisors.”
– Amelia Hartney
