NMIT helping to build Northern Melbourne's E-Business Capacity

23 Jul 2010

Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE's Business Enterprise Centre (BEC) is playing an active role in the 'Building Northern Melbourne's E-business Capacity' program, which will assist small businesses to establish and maintain an online presence, manage web content and enhancements using open source software, use a website for effective marketing and sales, and develop e-commerce strategies.

The program provides Business owners and managers with cost effective e-business strategies to match their needs. The program utilises both seminars and workshops and training will be 'hands on' to ensure business owners and managers can immediately apply what is learnt to their own business. Mentoring support and online resources including custom videos are also included in the program.

'Building Northern Melbourne's E-business Capacity' is an Australian Government Initiative (AusIndustry). The project is being led by Darebin Enterprise Centre Ltd in partnership with Business Enterprise Centre (BEC), NMIT and the City of Darebin.
