The ultimate goal of a Business Centre is to help develop sustainable businesses, which can in turn improve the wealth and prosperity of the wider Business Community.

Business Centres foster a culture of entrepreneurship, by providing opportunities for businesses to refer clients to one another, as well as participate in a range of learning and networking activities.

Tenant Testimonials

“We have benefited greatly from the friendly reception services offered and the admin and IT support that is always on hand. Ballarat Business Centre has provided our staff with a sense of security and a welcoming atmosphere. We hope to continue our relationship with BBC for many years to come.”

“Ballarat Business Centre provided me with a low risk option for starting up my practice in a professional setting. The staff and facilities at BBC have enabled me to offer a comfortable, welcoming waiting space and consultation room to families in a location that is known, accessible and central to Ballarat. 24-hour access into my office has provided me with the flexibility I need to manage my practice and family commitments. I am extremely grateful for the support the staff at BBC have provided.”

“Bringing my business to Holmes Street is by far the most rewarding thing I have done for myself and my business. The growth I have had within this time, is without a doubt, more than I could ever had imagined with new clients and being able to offer varying new Group Fitness classes. The opportunity given to me by Ballarat Business Centre has enabled my business to have a home. From that has come growth and a great supportive community amongst everyone that attends the gym space.”

“Simpsons has worked out of the Ballarat Business Centre for many years. The Centre staff are very professional and nothing is too much trouble for them. The Centre facilities are second to none and let Simpsons get on with the job in comfortable and well-organised surroundings. I would highly recommend the Ballarat Business Centre to any new or growing business.”

Bryce Simpson, Simpsons
