Eastern Innovation Business Centre underway

June 5th, 2014 posted by

The vision for an Eastern Innovation Business Centre continues to build, with construction now under way. Last week I joined the State Member of Parliament for Burwood Graham Watt, Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region Bruce Atkinson as well as representatives of Monash City Council and the Commonwealth Government to acknowledge the milestone.

The $4.995 million plus project, funded by the Commonwealth, Victorian and local governments, will offer start-up businesses and microbusinesses ongoing support through expert mentoring, training and education as well as the opportunity to collaborate on projects. The centre will also create 100 extra jobs in small businesses within the first 16 months of operation, and more than 100 jobs will be generated during the construction phase of the project.
