Who’s it for?

If you’re an aspiring business owner,  a seasoned entrepreneur, a social enterprise, or an intrapraneur in an organisation looking to launch a new product or service, CO.STARTERS is for you. The only real prerequisites are (1) having an idea you’re ready, willing, and excited to share and pursue and (2) a willingness to study, shape and fine-tune that idea in a supportive, collaborative, and welcoming environment. If you’re creative you’ll love it. Community-minded?  This is for you. If you’re serious about turning your passion into a sustainable business, we want you. All ages and stages in life welcomed including teens/school initiatives, young entrepreneurs, career changers, parents at home, social entrepreneurs, new starts after redundancies, transitioning to retirement, and the forever young at heart! We’ll surround you during and after the program with the power and support of our highly experienced and qualified small business mentors and coaches plus the greater business community in Australia and the world.

What to expect?

CO.STARTERS is an action-driven, collaborative process with a small and supportive group of like-minded people. Whether your business is micro or scalable, low tech or high tech, solo or with others, Co.Starters will be the strong foundation that will see you still in business years after you leave the program. Led by a facilitator who is a highly experienced small business person and mentor, you’ll identify your assumptions about why and how your businesses will work and then talk to customers in order to validate your ideas. This approach enables you to rapidly uncover flaws in your concept and find viable models more quickly. You’ll leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to create a sustainable business, be a success, and repeat the process with your next great idea. Be a business success story, not a business casualty! Click on our EVENTS link to see upcoming groups.
