Throughout our journey, the MBN has had a strong relationship with the Victorian State Government – especially with Small Business Victoria. In November 2020, the MBN was successful in securing funds via the Grants for Business Chambers and Traders Groups Program. These funds have enabled the MBN to redevelop our website and portal where members can assess their business needs, access expertise as well as be part of a collaborative and thriving business community.
The Melbourne Business Network has a long history with the City of Melbourne. The MBN works in partnership with the City of Melbourne in the achievement of its goals. We play a key role in assisting the city in being prosperous, connected and in the sharing of expertise. As a not-for-profit we supported by the City through their SmartyGrants program.
