Small Business Support

Help for Startups

When starting up a new business, it is critical to create a road-map to success. It is essential that you test your idea thoroughly, set goals, create a plan, develop a budget and cash-flow projections, an
undertake a SWOT analysis of your proposed business.  This planning is crucial, and something that most business owners do not do adequately, to set themselves up for success.

Our small business consultants can help with essential steps such as registering your ABN, ACN and GST if required. Other important considerations for your start up include:

  • Company Logos
  • Website
  • Domain registration
  • Marketing materials
  • Establishment of social media profiles
  • Google analytics Set-up
  • Basic website SEO
  • Marketing plan

Help for Migrant Start-ups

Initium Advisory has a solid understanding of the migrant community through the Directors’ strong background in Australian Immigration Law. Having worked with migrants for many years, we have a deep understanding of the challenges faced by migrants, as well as the significant opportunities they can bring to our communities.

We know there are a few key barriers faced by migrants when looking to start their own business, including:

  • Business Coaching – It can be difficult for migrants to know where to turn for reliable information when they arrive in our country. Initium Advisory supports migrant entrepreneurs with local knowledge and business mentoring, to maximise their chances of successfully establishing a business in Australia.
  • Networks – Initium can help you to establish new networks with business, industry and government. Building a strong network is crucial in small business, and will enable your business to grow and thrive. Being actively involved in your community is a great way to increase the exposure of your business, and grow your network.
  • Help to find funding – There are a lot of resources available to newly arrived migrants, some of which may be funding to start a new business or improve skills. We can help you source funding, and apply for your grant. There may also be other types of non-monetary support available to support your start-up.​
