Starting up a New Business on a Budget - Sydney

If you're thinking of starting up your own business there are several low cost set-up options you should know about. Tim Martin will offer insight to his own business operations including his preferred cloud based business applications and business outsourcing sites (and the financial breakdowns).

This half-day session utilises live online demonstrations.

Who it's for

Anyone who thinks now is not the right time to set up a new business because they don't have enough funds.

Who it's not for

Businesspeople who still very much like the old ways of doing things, e.g. YellowPages ads and faxing.
