Lighthouse offers a free initial consultation with a Lighthouse Commercialisation Manager to discuss your business or business idea.

The consultations are generally provided face-to-face for ACT-based businesses, however if you are located outside Canberra or find a Skype or telephone meeting more convenient, then that is also possible.

These meetings are very informal and are largely driven by you and where you think you need assistance. 


Many people come to see us because they would like to discuss the following issues in relation to their business or business idea:

  • Whether their business idea is worth pursuing
  • Where to get funding or grant assistance
  • How to market their products or services
  • Problems amongst the founding team or finding a co-founder
  • Referrals to service providers like accountants, lawyers, IP specialists etc.
  • They're looking for a mentor
  • They are completely new to business and are unsure about how and what they need to know and do
  • They need help identifying a target market and finding a first customer

To access this service, simply contact Lighthouse on (02) 6163-8300 or 1300 365 514 or email [email protected] to make an appointment.
