Esperance Local Enterprise Initiative Committee
The Esperance Local Enterprise Initiative Committee Inc received a $5,000 grant to support the committee’s Hobby to Business: Pathway to Employment program, through Domino’s Give for Good small grants program in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
The practical training workshops supported art-focused micro-businesses to transition into larger, sustainable small businesses.
Esperance Local Enterprise Initiative Committee Manager Colin McArthur said they were thrilled to receive the grant from Domino’s Give for Good as it helped to supplement the Hobby to Business training program expenditures.
“The courses are run by local facilitators and cover topics such as business registration, ATO compliance, licenses, insurance, using technology in business, marketing, sales, product sourcing and product development,” Colin said.
“The development of these key skills significantly benefits our regional community and we are really excited about boosting the future of our local entrepreneurs.”
Domino’s Director of Giving John Harney said the Esperance Local Enterprise Initiative Committee was the perfect candidate for the Give for Good small grants program.
“At Domino’s, we believe in supporting programs that provide opportunities for leadership and entrepreneurship in the community,” John said.
"The Hobby to Business: Pathway to Employment program has helped local entrepreneurs develop important skills necessary to start a sustainable small business.
“We hope that by supporting this program we are providing the local community the opportunity to become skilled entrepreneurs.”
Domino’s Give for Good small grants program launched in 2016 through the FRRR with 20 not-for-profit organisations and community groups sharing in just under $90,000.
