Into Business Online Course

IBA offers an online learning course to assist Indigenous entrepreneurs to progress their ideas for business at their own pace. All the materials are provided via IBA’s online Learning Place platform, so participants can easily access them from anywhere with internet access.

During the Into Business online course participants will:

  • assess their skills, capabilities and suitability for business ownership
  • develop a simple business plan to help determine the viability of their business idea
  • research the strength of their business proposal
  • learn about general business principles and the preparation required to start a business.

The course is divided into three units of study:

Unit A – explores small business ownership fundamentals and how to prepare, plan and research your business idea

Unit B – looks at how you might market your business and introduces key financial aspects of your business such as pricing, sales projections and financial analysis

Unit C- looks further into financial planning for small business, business structure and key management considerations.

A voiceover will assist you in working through the learning materials, units and activities. You will be required to download and complete a business plan and a business action table to record your notes and action items.
