If your Australian small business needs investors to get the money you need, for whatever reason, you may wish to consider government small business funding as an alternative. The government of Australia recognises the long term benefits of helping with certain approved expenses rather than letting small business operations such as yours collapse. This is because such programs help create jobs in Australia while also increasing tax revenue, all of which adds up to them being willing to offer better terms than would most private investors.
You can also take advantage of the Small Business Startup Assessment Tool below and see the tools and resources you need to succeed at launching your business. It takes just a minute and will also tell you if there may be any funding programs available.
