Business Enterprise Centres Australia (BECA) is the peak body for Business Enterprise Centres (BECs) across Australia. BECs are recognised as the first and best point of contact for small business operators seeking quality business information, advice and guidance. Each year BECA presents awards for exceptional performance of BECs and advisors.
