Featured Business – Portable Horse Stables
Portable Horse Tables is a Tamworth based company founded by Craig Vincent. With support from NORTEC’s local Small Business Advisor, Derek Tink, Craig talks to Madeline George from NORTEC about the start up and growth of his business and how his mentor Derek is supporting him.
“I have always been an employee so this is my first time at business… I showed the prototype to Derek and he thought it was a great idea, he’s given me plenty of support, showed me how to set up a website, Facebook page etc… We have now ordered our second container-load and going great guns!”
“Without Derek I don’t know whether I would have got this going or have the ability or confidence to do it… Derek is a great mentor”.
NORTEC Small Business Solutions offer a range of private and government funded business support and advisory programs (including the State Government funded Business Connect Program) that assist small business owners to strengthen and grow their business.
