Nick achieves small business dream with NEIS
Like many small business owners, Nick Razzi wanted to capitalise on his passions and turn a hobby into a thriving small business.
While Nick started his career as a metal fabricator, it was the chance to custom paint cars for a living that shaped his future ambitions.
Now he is a successful business owner and making a significant impact on the local small business landscape.
How New Business Assistance with NEIS can help you start your small business
Holmesglen’s NEIS program provides eligible applicants with small business management training, financial support and mentorship.
Nick used the program to start his business, Classic Body Group, which specialises in classic car restoration.
New Business Assistance with NEIS helped Nick shape his business ideas, create a business plan and clear strategies, as well as market his niche concept.
Nick's skills in metal fabrication combined with his quality showroom-finish paintwork have seen his business grow month-on-month. He now restores a variety of rare cars, many for private collectors.
Nick’s business is in demand through the foundations he received during his NEIS training. The knowledge he received from his NEIS business mentor has also helped him promote his business through word of mouth and rare car collectors' networks.
