Keeping it in the family

FREE!

Assisting migrant families in the City of Melbourne to start their own business.

Were you born overseas? Have you thought about running a business with one or more of your family members?

Do you know what to do to start a business?

Come along to a FREE 3 hour Big Ideas workshop to help you get your business idea out of your head and onto paper. 

Keeping it in the family is a business startup program for migrant families who live or work in the City of Melbourne.

We know that migrants are resourceful and often entrepreneurial and many have experience of running a family owned business.

Funded by the City of Melbourne and delivered by iGen Foundation in partnership with Jesuit Social Services, Keeping It in the Family will work with 40 families over two years from 2022 to 2023.

PLEASE NOTE: BIG IDEAS WORKSHOPS WILL BE HELD IN SPANISH

Who can be involved?

Keeping It in the Family is a specific initiative to help migrants learn about starting a family business in Melbourne.

 

If:

  • you or a family member were born overseas

  • you want to work with a family member to think of a business idea or you already have an idea or business you want to explore

  • and you or your family member live, work or study in City of Melbourne Council or surrounding Council areas, you are welcome to attend.

Who is considered family?

Anyone related to you.

  • parent/s, guardian or step parents, children or step children

  • brother, sister, half or step brother or sister

  • grandparent or step grandparent, aunty, uncle or cousin.

You are welcome to bring more than one family member to a Big Ideas Workshop.

Want to find out more about the Big Ideas workshop?

We held an online information session at 11.00am on 14 May.
You can watch the info session here. It's in Spanish.

When are the Big Ideas workshops?

We want as many people as possible to attend a Big Ideas workshop, so we're holding three workshops at different times. You and your family member only need to attend one session as the workshop is the same each time.
