Today on StartupSmart, we look at what small businesses can do to stave off the damaging impact of rising energy prices.
The Australian Industry Group recently estimated that electricity costs will rise $1.2 billion this year alone, adding to the growing overheads already faced by many companies.
Today, we provide some essential tips on how you can take an axe to your overheads, particularly your energy bills.
Elsewhere, we chat to the founders of Direct Energy, winner of the Best Green Start-up at the 2011 StartupSmart Awards and mentor Philip Weinman explains what to do if you’re struggling to get time with a busy mentor.
