If you have the passion, the skills and the concept to start a venture then you have the tools and ingredients that can help you cook up a new business. But they are not enough. The technical and legal part of founding a startup is the arduous part. There are business permits and registrations needed to make your venture legit. You have to know about contracts, taxation, labour, and other legal intricacies that are related to running a company. Not only will it free you from unnecessary stress, but it is also a way of protecting your business.

As a business owner, you have to familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations that are in place so that you know the things you need to abide with and the things that can protect you from unwarranted situations. If this is an area where you need the help most, it is better to seek the advice of knowledgeable persons on business regulations who can orient you with the do's and don'ts in business. Good thing we have this workshop because you can just do all that in a venue where experts can guide you through the regulations pertaining to setting up and running an enterprise. Remember, ignorance of the law, as well as of business regulations, is never an excuse. Be in the know.

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.

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.
