Start and grow
your business

Welcome to Enterprising Partnerships

With more than 30 years experience as a business consulting firm, we’ve helped thousands of people create, grow and scale their businesses. We work with startups, entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders and governments. We’re focused on self-determination in business ownership and entrepreneurship.

Our strengths and core areas of work are business mentoring, business coaching and entrepreneurship skills development for self-employment and employment of others. We work with people at the earliest stage of their business idea; at the start up stage of their business and when their business is ready for growth in Australia or globally.

Our expertise assists local governments to ignite a spark in their community to help residents grow their local economy. We assist state and federal governments to deliver critical programs which support businesses to survive post COVID-19 and thrive with solutions to meet emerging and existing problems. 

We transform people into business owners, problems into solutions and leave people we work with more skilled, capable and confident.

Getting Down to Business supports all types of people in getting their business idea started.

Getting Back to Business enables business owners and leaders to think, reflect and act on their business priorities.


Recognising the lack of support for entrepreneurship, we created a NFP committed to cultivating entrepreneurship by young people, migrants and those in regional communities.

We're delighted to help promote Invest in a Young Entrepreneur, the next program for iGen Foundation.

This free program is funded by businesses that see youth entrepreneurship as a way of investing in businesses of the future.

Without the following sponsors, the Invest in a Young Entrepreneur program would not be possible.

Thank you from the iGen Foundation board and 2022 young entrepreneurs.

iGen Foundation has another reason to celebrate its programs and expertise in working with marginalised communities.

In partnership with Jesuit Social Services, funded by City of Melbourne, and evaluated by the schools of Entrepreneurship and Social Sciences at Swinburne University of Technology, Keeping it in the Family: business training for migrant families focuses on building business capability with two or more family members.

The first cohort in the program is unique as it is the only entrepreneurship to be delivered in a language other than English. Spanish speakers are welcome to find out more information or apply
