Exploring Being My Own Boss Workshops

The Exploring Being My Own Boss (EBMOB) Workshops are designed to give participants a taste of entrepreneurship and self-employment. Workshops also support those that have a business idea or a dream of being their own boss, but may not be at a stage that they can commence New Business Assistance with NEIS.

The workshop is conducted over two weeks (25 hours per week) and is fully subsidised by the Australian Government Department of Employment.

To be eligible for the Explore Being My Own Boss workshops applicants must:

  • not be in employment, education or training.
  • be at least 18 years of age at the time of signing the EBMOB Participation Agreement.
  • be eligible to work in Australia.
Exploring Being My Own Boss will cover 10 key topics to give you an appreciation of how to start your own business and whether entrepreneurship is a viable career path for you. At the end of the workshop you will gain access to a number of discounts and benefits from leading business providers helping to kick start your business dreams. There is also opportunity for complementary work placements where you can gain on-ground experience in a similar business or industry as your own start-up.
