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.

Learn more about how we can help your business from idea to growth.

Start and grow your business with EP.

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.

Born out of necessity from COVID-19, Business Allies RoundTable (BART) is an alliance of entrepreneurial business leaders committed to encouraging each other to follow through on commitments to their business and their knowledge to support each other. 

These are business leaders and owners who want to accelerate their achievements through learning from each other and guests at monthly Roundtable sessions. They are willing to challenge each other’s goals and to support and advise each other as like-minded professionals.

BART is for men and women in non-competing businesses and structured around teams of business owners and leaders from similar sized enterprises.

Apply for iGen Foundation programs 

iGen Foundation is a charitable organisation which began in 2015 as a passion project completely funded by Enterprising Partnerships. Over the years, iGen has become a critical driver of entrepreneurial pathway creation for young people and migrants. 

In addition to continued funding and other support from Enterprising Partnerships, iGen Foundation now receives government grants and business sponsorship to help design, operate and implement its expertise.

By creating unique business startup and growth programs, iGen Foundation nurtures the next generations of economic development for local communities and increases employment and self-determination through business ownership for young people and migrants.

After a successful 2022 program assisting young people up to 30 years old to gain the skills needed to start and grow a business we're delighted to help promote Invest in a Young Entrepreneur 2023 for iGen Foundation.

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

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