StartNorth Masterclasses taking care of business

Budding entrepreneurs can boost their business ideas through seven upcoming StartNorth masterclasses which will focus on the critical elements of managing a small business such as developing brands and finance for startups.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said it is easy to feel isolated at the start of your business journey.  

“Hume City Council is creating opportunities for business people to learn the skills they need to succeed in their business and connect with other like-minded people.

“I encourage you to attend the free Masterclass classes and get excited about the StartNorth coworking space opening in Spring.”

The Town Hall Broadmeadows redevelopment is nearing completion and will house the StartNorth coworking space which will assist startups and scaleups to excel. It will host more than 80 members and have a mix of flexible and permanent desks, private offices and bookable meeting rooms.

All StartNorth masterclasses will be held at the Hume Global Learning Centre - Broadmeadows

This series of events is made possible with funding from LaunchVic, an initiative of the Victorian State Government.
