Free one-on-one business advisory sessions to support inner-city businesses impacted by COVID-19

Paul Robson

It has been a challenging time for many businesses during COVID-19. Small business that operate in inner-city Melbourne normally benefit from strong domestic, regional and international tourism, international education and city workers. With these economic drivers disrupted, focused funding is required to support the reactivation of the inner-city economy.
City of Melbourne has partnered with the Victorian Government to deliver $10 million in extra support for inner-city businesses in the CBD, Southbank and Docklands.
Moore Australia’s (VIC) partnership with the City of Melbourne allows us to deliver one-on-one support consultations for local businesses, which is funded by City of Melbourne.
This support allows a series of meetings (virtual or via phone) with one of our senior business experts. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss your current challenges and strategies for your business to succeed in the new COVID-19 normal world.
