Business Support

The Warrnambool City Council Economic Development Team is here to help businesses operating in Warrnambool reach their full potential.

We facilitate regular workshops and seminars across all areas of business with expert presenters, showing you how you can apply best practice examples to your business.

We offer free one-on-one business mentoring through the Small Business Mentoring Service, and circulate a free weekly business e-newsletter.

The popular Club Wednesday evenings, presented in partnership with 3YB Coast FM, take place on the first Wednesday of the month and provide an opportunity to network with members of the Warrnambool business community in a relaxed and professional environment.

The last Thursday of each month sees the Customer Service Awards ceremony take place at South West TAFE, our major partner in the awards.

Along with 3YB Coast FM, we are also proud to be involved with the Powercor Business Excellence Awards, recognising local business achievements in 12 categories that culminate at a gala event in October.

As well as our regular events, we are coordinating the annual Small Business Festival Victoria for the region. Throughout August the Festival will feature a range of sessions and presentations to provide you with new ideas on how to get the most out of the various areas of your business.

We believe that Warrnambool is home to a vibrant and innovative business community and we are committed to helping build the knowledge, skills and confidence of Warrnambool businesses.
