Nervous about a new idea you have or innovative product or service in your business?
We are always advised we need to work ‘on the business’ rather than ‘in the business’.  This is very true when it comes to bringing out a new idea/service/product to enhance or grow your business. Having the idea is one thing but then you have to work through whether it’s even feasible, and how you’ll test the market.  Maybe you’ll need to build a prototype? It can all feel too hard.
Spending time early on with other innovators and advisors saves a lot of angst and dollars down the track. This is why CO.STARTERS works for everyone. The CO.STARTERS 9 workshop or flexible program is for business people keen to get their new idea right and making money fast.  This program uses the Lean Startup method.

This program is flexible to meet your busy schedule and your lifestyle.  Choose to attend all 9 workshops where you will be in a small group with your dedicated facilitator/mentor, or do the program by a combination of mentoring sessions plus attend some masterclasses or events. Participants normally work through the CO.STARTERS program within 9-12 weeks.

Your outcome?

If innovating, you will have completed feasibility testing of your new product or service and a clear plan for commercialisation.

You will receive comprehensive printed materials in a quality binder which you are able to complete and use after the program as well.

What are you worth?

$100 discount to help you get started if you enrol now to start February 2020.  (Special price only $890). Unsure about cost?  Ask yourself why a customer will want to purchase from you if you aren’t valuing your own knowledge in business.

“A favourite of Meghan Markle, Outland Denim has gained a name for being the most ethical jean brand in the business. As a notoriously bad product for the environment, Outland’s not-so-bad denim is made from sustainably sourced cotton and ensures it helps empower the women who make their jeans. Made by Cambodian women who have been victims of sex trafficking, Outland’s vision starts with the very first hire — and ends with a damn good pair of jeans.” – Marie Claire
