Providing Services and Opportunities to Help You and Your Business Grow

Could the Business Growth Centre be the right place for you to build a business?

A New Chapter for the Business Growth Centre

On July 1, 2021, Central Coast Community College took over the running of the Lake Macquarie Business Growth Centre.

The BGC is a business park providing tenants with light industrial and office space options. The main office complex includes reception, a function/training room, and a shared kitchen facility with a fulltime site manager.

Opening in 1998, the Business Growth Centre was originally established as a not-for-profit Business Enterprise Centre, Business Incubator and Registered Training Organisation, with a purpose to support and grow small and micro businesses in the Lake Macquarie Local Government Area.

23 years later, the BGC becomes the third location for the college, providing a new opportunity to connect with the Lake Macquarie and Newcastle regions.

The range of services and opportunities that are available at the Business Growth Centre include:

Rent a Space

The Business Growth Centre provides office space and light industrial units to rent at affordable prices. As a tenant you would benefit from flexible lease agreements, access to support services and advice, and the ability to grow within a friendly environment.

Networking and Events

Networking is a terrific marketing opportunity for any business. The Business Growth Centre hosts a number of events, including the Lake Macquarie Women in Business Network, where you have the opportunity to make meaningful connections that will help grow your business. These are available both in person and virtually.

Business Training

Central Coast Community College delivers a range of nationally recognised business courses and training options. From a short workshop to pick up some new skills or an accredited course to further your career, we have a range of short and funded courses available.

The Business Growth Centre, Central Coast Community College and Hunter-V-Tech acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the Awabakal people’s connection to this land, sea and community, and commit to upholding the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
