A PROGRAM, Business Spark, launched in Yanchep aims to build better businesses in the suburb and surrounding areas.

Developer Yanchep Beach Joint Venture (YBJV) is working with the City of Wanneroo, Spacecubed, North Metro TAFE and the Small Business Development Corporation to develop economic activity in the area.

“The Y.hub project is a key economic development initiative of the YBJV which provides business incubation, research and educational opportunities,” chief executive Gin Wah Ang said.

“The Business Spark entrepreneur workshop series is the first of many programs we are looking to facilitate, working towards our goal of over 55,000 jobs for the greater Yanchep project.”

The workshops, facilitated by Skills of the Modern Age and funded by the Federal Government, will equip current and prospective innovators with skills to work and compete in the modern economy.

Skills of the Modern Age managing director Nate Sturcke said business owners’ access to affordable education was critical to their success.

“We’re excited to work with Y.hub and Spacecubed to offer our emerging skills workshop program to the Yanchep and surrounding business community,” he said.

Spacecubed impact manager Chandra Sundareswaran said the organisation aimed to empower and connect businesses.

Through a memorandum of understanding with North Metropolitan TAFE in partnership with the City, YBJV will also soon be delivering accredited one-day courses from the Y.hub.

The Small Business Development Corporation will also run workshops.

“We are working hard to provide the right conditions for local entrepreneurs to succeed,” Y.hub manager Paul Leone said.

“This is important to ensure ongoing job growth in new and emerging sectors of the economy.”
