Business mentoring and support

Business mentoring through free small business mentoring packages.

Small Business Support Packages  

As part of our commitment to developing the solar industry, we’ve partnered with Small Business Victoria to provide support to retailers and installers participating in the Solar Homes Program.


What’s on offer?

We are offering fully-funded Business Support Packages, made up of 90-minute consultations with mentors from the Small Business Mentoring Service (SBMS). These mentors are highly experienced business people, who aim to help solar providers maximise their opportunities and plan for business growth. Learn more about SBMS here.

Two packages to choose from:

SMBS Mentors can help you create a long-term strategy and provide confidential support on a range of topics such as planning for growth, managing your cashflow, risk minimisation strategies and marketing to consumers.

To get the most out of these free mentoring sessions, we’ve put together two packages to choose from:

  • Small package: 2 x 90 minute sessions (3 hours); or
  • Large package: 4 x 90 minute sessions (6 hours)

There’s a range of SBMS Mentors to choose from, specialising in different aspects of business operations. Search the SBMS directory and find a Mentor in your area to suit your business needs.
