Business Classes and Workshops

There has never been a better time to do business in Frankston City.

Small business is the heartbeat of our city, with 98 per cent of Frankston City businesses employing less than 20 people.  One of the nine key priorities in Council’s Economic Development Strategy 2016-2022 is to provide an environment that encourages vibrant and resilient small businesses.

The Build your Business workshop program is a key pillar for providing support to the small business community.
