About HBC

Hinterland Business Centre Inc. (HBC) is a not-for-profit non-government community organisation. It is a self-funded economic development driver whose focus is to develop “smart” businesses with emphasis on supporting and assisting the local Sunshine Coast Hinterland community to become sustainable.

The Hinterland Business Centre was established in 2004 with funding assistance by the Commonwealth Department of Industry Tourism and Resources through its Small Business Incubator Program.

The organisation seeks to address a number of existing barriers in relation to community access to business development and service delivery through the provision of infrastructure and support systems.
