THE Belmont Business Enterprise Centre (BBEC) has embarked on a new venture to help entrepreneurs.
It has started crowd funding in order to publish a book, 1001 Business Tips from 101 Entrepreneurs, which includes tips and information from success- ful entrepreneurs.
Charles Ryder, chief executive of Victoria Park’s White Chalk Road, has already put his hand up to share his tips.
The book aims to give new small business entrepreneurs valuable insights and practical tips into being aware of the hurdles they may need to overcome, and learn from those who have experienced the full spectre of business issues over many years.
Founding manager of BBEC Carol Hanlon said only three out of every 10 entrepreneurs who start their own business remain in business after the first few years.
“We aim to do something about it by producing a range of business tip books that can assist to reduce the fall-out rates or better prepare those before starting their business of the many issues to be faced and how others overcame these issues,” she said.
“It has also been identified that some 25 per cent of small businesses have a turnover under $50,000, which highlights an issue with entrepreneurs that maybe they are facing too many hurdles and are not sure how to overcome these business problems.”
All donors will receive an eBook copy.
