CIT launches small business mentoring for a post-COVID-19 world

Published: 29 Nov 2021

CIT, in partnership with venture capital firm Epicorp and the Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN), is conducting a series of mentoring workshops to assist small businesses across the ACT region to continue to grow as Canberra emerges from COVID-19 lockdown. A number of $5,000 prizes will be on offer, to be used to develop business concepts.

Canberra region small businesses are invited to attend the mentoring workshops series online, where they will have access to industry experts who will help guide the progression of their business plans.

The workshops will focus on understanding and responding to customer needs, how to approach business plans post-COVID-19, and how to thrive amidst the likely ongoing challenges as the world adapts to pandemic-related changes.

Part of the workshop series will involve developing a business presentation or 'pitch', to be in the running to win $5,000 funded by Epicorp. Terms and conditions will apply, including requirements for the businesses to undertake a CIT short online course, a CIT face-to-face program, or participate in a one-on-one mentoring program.
