Courses, tools, and resources to help support small businesses in our Region.

Training courses and workshops

There are a number of training courses available in our Region to help businesses grow and develop. 

Digital Marketing Mentoring Program

We've partnered with DMS Creative to offer fully subsidised expert advice to local businesses, as part of its Digital Marketing Mentoring program.

Whether you run an established business or are looking for ways to best use digital marketing the program will provide growing small and medium businesses in the Region with expert advice. The program will help navigate digital marketing and service technologies, tailored to their industry and specific business needs, and help you build a Digital Business Action Plan.

Small Business Friendly Council initiative

We’ve joined the Small Business Friendly Council’s initiative partnering with the Queensland Small Business Commissioner to actively support small business in the Toowoomba Region. Small businesses are at the heart our regional communities as they create local jobs and support the local economy while providing essential goods and services. This initiative is Council’s commitment to be mindful of small business when making community decisions.

Business Launchpad

The Business Launchpad is a new service that aims to save you time and effort when starting and running a small business. Get started by creating a guide of licences, permits and other regulatory requirements from federal, state and local government, specifically for your business. Once you’ve created a guide, you can review the requirements for starting your business, answer questions to return tailored results, and keep track of where you are in the process.
