Designed to help business owners


The Southern Business Mentoring Program is an initiative developed and implemented by the Cities of Holdfast Bay, Marion, Onkaparinga and Yankalilla. It comes in response to an increasingly difficult economic environment and has supported local businesses with brainstorming ideas, streamlining employment changes, transitioning to digital retail platforms and marketing solutions.

The Southern Business Mentoring Program acknowledges the land on which we work is the traditional lands of the Kaurna people.
We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide plains and recognise their continuous relationship to the land and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Ngarrindjeri has native title in the South of Yankalilla.
