The Western Business Accelerator and Centre of Excellence (Western BACE), was established and opened in May 2015 with the primary role of being the hub of enterprise, community activity and business development for Melbourne’s West.
With extensive growth projected in this region, the Western BACE’s vision is that Melbourne’s West has the support and enterprise ecosystem that rivals any major Australian city.
We aim to achieve this by creating a community driven business hub where people matter, feel a sense of belonging and are supported in striving for growth and excellence.
Western BACE is a not-for-profit social enterprise strategically located at the heart of Western Melbourne’s population growth corridor. Western BACE Limited was formally established and registered as a company limited by guarantee (“the Company”). Incorporation occurred on 16 May 2014.
Since that time, Western BACE has already firmly established itself as an enabler to help the growing population generate a sustainable environment for both business development and educational based learning. Programs and partnerships have delivered outcomes for Melbourne’s West, a region experiencing one of the highest concentrations of population growth seen in Australia in recent times.
The voluntary Board consists of up to twelve Directors possessing a collective mix of experience and appropriate skills to ensure the company has a broad-based mix of professional expertise and experience.
