Local Business Welcome Program

The Economic Development Team would like to welcome you to our community!

The Hills Shire Council Local Business Welcome Program is a series of events for those who have recently started a new local business, moved their business to The Hills district or is an existing business looking to connect with the Hills business Community.

When we ask business owners ‘what would have helped you in the early days of your business?’, the overwhelming response is ‘connecting with business networks and others in the area earlier’.

They tell us that the fast pace of their working lives leaves little time to discover and connect with the key people and resources that could make things a little easier.

The Hills Shire Council understands this and has developed a Local Business Welcome event to help you right from the start. Our FREE welcome event is held twice each year and gives you the chance to meet with other businesses and discover the range of assistance and support available locally.

What can I expect?

At our Local Business Welcome you will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet Council's Economic Development/Business Support Team
  • Be personally welcomed by The Mayor of The Hills Shire
  • Discover others from the local business community and connect with industry leaders
  • Learn about the active networking groups in The Hills and how they can support you
  • Receive The Hills Shire Council’s information-packed 'Business Welcome Kit'
  • Network with like-minded local businesses
  • Better understand the opportunities available locally
  • Register to access the latest news, events and information for Hills businesses

Who can register to attend?

This relaxed, enjoyable event is suitable for you if you’re starting a new local business or have launched a business in the last 12 months, as well as established businesses who are new to The Hills district.

If you would like to meet and greet key local business people, connect with Council, or make the contacts you need to kick-start your local business, then the Local Business Welcome event is for you.

This is also an opportunity for existing Hills businesses to re engage with local business support initiatives.
