Business Support Service

Business Support Service

The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) funds a Business Support Service (BSS) to provide mentoring and professional business support to eligible applicants in the region, who have an existing business, or are ready to start one.

Business mentoring

Are you a local Torres Strait Islander or Aboriginal business owner seeking a mentor for yourself, or your staff?

TSRA Business Mentoring and Support is provided by highly experienced business mentors selected on their knowledge, skills and experience.

What is mentoring?

Mentoring in business refers to a relationship between an experienced businessperson (mentor) and a business owner (mentee). It can be used at all stages of your business journey and offers benefits to both mentors and mentees.


Business support

In addition to business mentoring, we also offer professional business support for eligible Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal owned businesses currently operating in the Torres Strait.

We offer a range of services including:

  • capability and skills assessment
  • book keeping and accounting
  • financial management
  • business recovery and turnaround
  • business and industry insights/market intelligence
  • business development (including tendering and strategic pricing).
