Do you dream of owning your own business?
Have you got the ideas and determination to succeed but need a hand to get started?

Our new Start-up Hub offers graduates the best chance of success with access to our extensive connections, resources and a dedicated shared office space and services at our Waverley campus. Access to our Start-up Hub is free and is offered exclusively to Holmesglen graduates.

You can start the application process right now by expressing interest. We’ll confirm your eligibility and if shortlisted, will book in a consultation to understand more about your aspirations so that we can ensure we can help you to achieve your goals.

You get dedicated training and support to build your plan, a free accredited qualification (Certificate III in Micro Business Operations) and access to financial, legal, marketing and administration support.

We work with you for a six-week period to build your business plan and get you in a position where you are ready to launch. Our Start-up Hub provides training and assistance to develop your business plan, access to mentors and professional services and a shared office space for you to build your business.
We’ve worked hard to build a program that connects you with the kind of professionals that you need to make your idea a reality. This is all part of us helping you to learn more and do more.

The Hub is a physical, shared space at our Waverley campus. If accepted, you can access the Hub Monday to Friday 7am - 10pm and Saturdays 9am - 5pm.
You can bring your own devices and use our wi-fi, hold meetings and use our shared administration services such as printing and postal services.

If you are a Holmesglen graduate or currently enrolled, you can apply – but spaces are limited. To be offered a place you need to be committed to working full-time to build your business, and cannot be working or studying more than 15 hours per week on a regular basis.
