Advanced business incubator

The Advanced Business Incubator was developed as a next steps program once completing the Business Incubator. We found the women needed further support with product development, promotion and sales. In this program participants are referred to Business advisors from Western Sydney area. The women also receive hands on experience with customer service, sales and promotion at The Rising Collective Boutique.

The Rising Collective Boutique is a pop up shop at 52 Scott Street, Liverpool generously given to us by Liverpool City Council. With support from Sydney Community Foundation and The Office Space, Advanced Business Incubator women are able to display and sell their products at the shop all year round. We are continuously welcoming new women and increasing in new stock every few months.

We are so proud of the women that have come through the program, made sales and who have come along way in their business journey.
