How Business Beyond works

Business Beyond is funded by the Federal Government under the Australian Small Business Advisory Services (ASBAS) program. With Business Beyond, we work with small businesses at all stages of development, to understand where you are and what challenges you face.

Using our established diagnostic method, we work with the owner to build a picture of your business and its need, and help you benchmark against others in your sector or firms that are similar in size and longevity.

Together, we identify those areas where you will get the greatest value from targeted support and connect you with a small group of similar owners for low-cost group-based training . Once training is complete, you are paired with an experienced mentor who can support and advise you on how to translate the training into your business.
