Kickstart Featured Programs
Below are the current featured Kickstart Programs
A one year program with 3 months of comprehensive workshops. Our incubator with 3 cohorts per year provides 3 months of in-depth business skills development coupled with personal mentoring and peer group activities for a further 9 months. This comprehensive program will give you skills and information you won’t find in any business school. It’s about common-sense approaches to starting a business based on your business idea and taking it to a point where you are generating sales and making a name for yourself.
A one year program to fulfill your goals. Your company has traction, you have some sales, have been in business for a minimum of 6 months but you have run into problems. It could be internal, market or financial issues and depending on the problem we can drop in an Executive-in-Residence, provide a mentor or even connect you to financing options. Workshops are specific to your direction, be it lean canvas, seed financing, distribution chain and certainly management skills. This is an equity-based program.
Many times a business needs something other than money. Many companies become so used to bootstrapping their business that mentoring and other support mechanisms from us can help get to the next level without diluting your company through funding. We do have the connections to connect you to the proper seed, angel or venture capital companies.
