The Onslow Hub Business Support Program

The Onslow Hub Business Support Program (BSP) is an initiative of the Onslow Chamber of Commerce & Industry, funded by the West Australian government's Pilbara Development Commission. 

 

With a vision of increasing the capacity and capability of local Onslow businesses, since its inception in 2018, the program has offered a myriad of business support to Onslow businesses, including business bootcamps, workshops, 1:1 mentorships and more… 

 

In June 2022 the organisation launched an innovative online training portal to bring the experience into the digital-age. This pilot program will see business support delivered in a way which can only be compared to the ‘Netflix’ of business – providing greater longevity of support, and ensuring the program continues to provide relevant, high-quality business insights tailored to the needs of our members. 

 

For the rest of 2022, OCCI members will have free on-demand access to an ever growing library of training videos on topics ranging from HR to business finances, to sustainability, marketing, and more. 

 

In addition to having the flexibility to consume content on-demand around their busy schedules, business owners will also have the opportunity to receive real time support from leading industry experts during themed monthly Q&A’s as well as networking opportunities via the purpose-built members area.   


Please contact our office if you have any questions about this initiative or would like to become a member of the Chamber.
