Where we began
Established in 1989, until 2017 we were known as Business Enterprise Centre (BEC) Southern Sydney. We originally offered support to businesses based in Southern Sydney and Sutherland Shire. In January 2017, we were proud to have been awarded the NSW Business Connect contract to provide free one-to-one business advice sessions, business advisory services, and training workshops to small businesses and disrupted industries across the Sydney area; including Southern Sydney, Inner West, Sydney’s CBD, Eastern Suburbs, North Shore, and Northern Beaches. Also in 2017, we re-branded as ‘Realise Business’ to enable us to evolve and expand our business to service this larger region.
The Realise Business name speaks to the emotional realisation business owners experience throughout their journey from start up to growth, and beyond. There are always new things to learn and new opportunities to realise. The name also speaks to the ultimate goal of all business owners, which is to realise success and growth, whatever that means for them. Whatever stage of business you’re in right now, our team will take the time to get to know your situation and help you connect, energise and grow your business.
Connect with experts, other business owners, and prospective customers; and get access to opportunities to showcase your business with small businesses across the whole of Sydney.
Energise your mind with access to education and expertise that can teach you new, motivating knowledge to help you realise your goals.
Grow your business with expert advice and actionable steps that improve efficiency and productivity in your business.
With over a combined total experience of over 200 years, our team has the experience and expertise to help you build your business and realise the growth opportunities that await.
