The Coraggio experience

Our Members represent a variety of industries including Trades, Manufacturing, Construction, Finance, Professional and Consumer Services across Australia.

Regardless of the size you wish to scale your business? Whether you run a $1M business or a $100M business, leaders can get to a certain point where they outgrow their current advisors and knowledge.

That’s where we come in. By sitting around a board table with 15 other private Australian business owners you will receive support and assistance specifically for your business. You may be looking to scale your business, create a succession plan or sell your business, a Coraggio Advisory Board combines a cohesive range of backgrounds and experience that you can draw upon.

We call this peer to peer mentoring.

CEO Welcome

Anything you can learn yourself; you can learn faster when guided.

Coraggio has assisted more than 400 businesses with fearless, objective advice to navigate, scale and grow their business.

We create an opportunity to discuss business challenges with your Chair, fellow Advisory Board Members, an accountant and a lawyer, 12 days a year.

This combined experience fills skill gaps in your knowledge, provides greater perspective, impartial advice and keeps you accountable to your goals.

We guarantee this formula produces productive business outcomes for all our Coraggio Members.

It is a privilege to be part of a 10 year legacy leading Coraggio into 2022, supporting the growth and expansion of private Australian business owners.
