Curtin program helps small businesses grow

Media release

Small business owners are invited to register for Curtin Growth, a practical course that helps owners maximise potential for their business.

The Curtin Growth program runs over 16 months and consists of 16 full day workshops and one-on-one support from experienced mentors.

Over the last 17 years, more than 1,000 Australian companies have taken part in the program.

Richard Thorning, Director of the Curtin Centre for Entrepreneurship, said the Growth Program differed from other small business programs as it was entirely practical, very comprehensive and focused on the participants’ businesses.

“A unique feature of the program is that each participant is matched with an experienced mentor or business coach,” Mr Thorning said.

“Participants spend a total of 30 hours one-on-one with their mentor at mutually convenient places and times.

“All of our mentors have been involved in running small to medium-sized businesses before and can offer invaluable guidance for the participants.”

Curtin Growth is delivered by Curtin Business School’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, a centre dedicated to education for small to medium sized enterprises since 1995.

Applications are now open for Curtin Growth 2012/13.
