Stories about "small business incubator":
It has come to light that NORTEC has recoded significant business losses during the last few years shedding more light on the motivations behind their recent withdrawal from programs they have been funded to provide both in the Byron, Lismore and Ballina shires.
Justine Elliot, Labor’s federal member for Richmond has made urgent representation to the minister for jobs and innovation over NORTECs termination of leases for the small businesses at their three small business incubator sites and the sale of the Goonellabah and Byron Bay sites.
NORTEC has now listed the Byron Bay small-business incubator site for sale through a local real estate as a ‘very rare opportunity to purchase a substantial holding in an area of low vacancy and high demand.’
NORTEC claims to be ‘creating opportunity and inspiring the future’ and that they are able to provide ‘small-business solutions’ but they have demonstrated that supporting and inspiring is not at the top of their list of priorities – at least not for the small businesses they were supposed to be supporting in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and Goonellabah.
