Business Faux Pas I Wish I Didn’t Make
Inspire9 Level 3, 41-43 Stewart St, Richmond VIC 3121, Australia

Migrating and living in Australia and setting up a business in this country needs more than just knowing the basic requirements and accomplishing them. There is a need to understand various cultural traditions and be sensitive to them to avoid the pitfalls of not understanding the market really well. How do you run a business in a different country? How different are the markets here than from where you came from? How do you deal with partners, clients and customers to make headway for your business?

There are quirks and nuisances of a society's culture that need to be understood in order to engage with them really well. You wouldn't want to commit to cultural faux pas as it may break a deal and cause havoc to your business.

Avoid making slip-ups. Know the culture of the market you are entering. Hear the stories of those who have been on this boat and learn how they steered their ships to the safer harbour to get out of such embarrassing situations. Better equip yourself beforehand and know how to maneuver yourself in unfamiliar territories.

Inspire9

inspire9.com

Inspire9 is the original community-led co-working space for Melbourne’s startups, freelancers, and creative entrepreneurs. It is a community in the truest sense. We share ideas, responsibilities and opportunities. We collaborate on projects, help our neighbours with a tricky technical problem and broker business deals over a game of pool or ping-pong. At the end of the week, we savour the satisfaction of work well done over a cheese plate and glass of something nice at our friendly Friday Night Drinks.


Dream Factory

dreamfactory.org.au

The Dream Factory has created a space for extraordinary people to gather and innovate in design, technology and social change. It is owned and powered by Impact Investment Group and has become one of Melbourne’s premier workplaces and event locations. The building features an ample on-site and secure car parking, very accessible bike paths from Melbourne CBD and inner north, great end-of-trip facilities, and loads of breakout spaces, meeting rooms and communal areas. The rooftop is one of Melbourne’s best panoramas of the city and port and is accessible to all its tenants.

Wade Institute

wadeinstitute.org.au

Wade Institute is home to The University of Melbourne’s Master of Entrepreneurship. When you’re teaching people to create, make and innovate, the space they occupy should invite them to create new things from the moment they walk in. The Wade Institute centre will do just that.

Rather than walk into a building full of classrooms and offices, students will enter a space with a kit of parts, from walls and screens to different desk parts and lights. This main studio workshop is a white canvas with colourful parts ready to become whatever students and staff need it to be – from open plan classroom to office, customer lab or forum to pitch their business idea.
