Business programs and toolkit
City of Gold Coast’s Competitive Business Program has been designed to support the city’s potential high-growth businesses. The 'open for business' toolkit promotes City of Gold Coast, Queensland and Australian Government programs, with a focus on encouraging business growth.
There are three businesses phases to help identify which business programs may potentially suit your business growth needs.
- Starting a business.
- Growing a business.
- Doing business internationally.
As outlined in the 'open for business' toolkit, eligible businesses can use this program to gain access to the knowledge and mentoring they need to innovate and expand.
Specific programs include:
- Growth Accelerator
- Business Online
- Securing Council (supply) Contracts workshops
- Supply Chain Development Program
- Emerging Exporters Program
Following completion of our Competitive Business Program, eligible businesses can access resources available in our International Trade and Investment Program which is aimed at developing international relations and increasing the city’s export base.
Our Business and Industry Engagement team is available to meet with eligible businesses to discuss growth plans and connect businesses with the appropriate resources.
