A Program by Good Shepherd

LaunchME is a 12 month FREE business coaching program for low income earners located in the South East of Melbourne. It is a Victorian State Government funded initiative.

Participants gain confidence, skills, connection and support to grow their business. A small amount of funding provides support with small purchases, referral to training and skill building and professional advice.

Key Deliverables of Program

The program supports people living in Dandenong (3175) and Doveton (3177). Due to Covid we are taking a number of out of area participants. Participants must be on low incomes (earning under 45,000 after tax) or have a healthcare card or pension card. Participants should have a micro-enterprise idea or business and be willing to participate in up to 12 months of business coaching.

Program participants are connected to a business coach (meeting every 2 weeks for 1 1/2 hours), they will have access to an online learning platform, workshops, webinars, support to find a mentor, connection to professional partners, tools, resources and access to financial support and Nil interest loan.
