Wollongong Business Support Programs

In 2021 we partnered with Investible on two free business support programs to help local businesses adapt, innovate and grow.

  • Primed to Thrive was available to all small businesses in the Wollongong Local Government Area. This online course empowered small business owners with tools, frameworks and strategies to remain competitive in today’s digital landscape.
  • Thrive was a 10-week virtual program for selected Wollongong businesses committed to taking their business to the next level. Thrive supported business owners to future-proof their business and explore new possibilities for expansion and innovation.

CBD Activation

As businesses and customers return to the Wollongong CBD, we're continuing to work to activate this precinct.

Please visit the Wollongong CBD website for updates. Businesses located within the Wollongong CBD can also request a free business or event listing on our website.
