Starting a business in Australia: Foundations

Presented by Andrea Restrepo


Are you a Spanish speaker migrant who just started a business in Australia? Have you been in business for a while but unsure if you are doing it the right way and following the local rules? Would you like to know the general steps you should follow to start and ensure your business continuity?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, then this webinar series is for you.

I understand how confusing and frustrating it is to start a business in Australia as a migrant. You want to do the right thing and be compliant with everything, but there is too much information, so many web pages to check and a lot of rules to follow. On top of that, most of the sources use very technical jargon, English is your second language, and you feel so lost.

In this webinars series, I will show you the general steps or road map (as a starting point) that will allow you to start and continue your business. And I will do it in Spanish.

You probably think that it is too late for you, as you have already started your business. But it is not! Ideally, some of these things should be done before launching your business, but there is always the option to reconsider and make changes to do everything right.

First webinar:
Starting a business in Australia: Foundations

Foundations are crucial in any construction. Building a business is not an exemption.
We will start the road map from the very beginning: reviewing some concepts and considerations about your vision (step 1), mission and idea (step 2) and business structures (first part of step 3).
