Belmont Business Enterprise Centre was also a successful recipient with grant funds to conduct the ‘BPW Business Incubator ONLINE Retirement Income Planning for Women’ project to educate women in home-based, micro-businesses on their options for superannuation and retirement. The project will take the form of 8 webinars, 4 forums and mentoring to over 40 participants. Discussions will explore options for women who intend to start a business, options for existing self-employed women, for women who intend to start home-based businesses, micro and small businesses, Indigenous, CaLD individuals, as well as rural and regionally located participants. The project will be addressing both the criteria of community benefit, and the priority of women’s economic independence.
