Accelerator

Venture Financing
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. (Apply here)

 

Bootcamp Freedom 55
This program is for entrepreneurs over 55 years old because you are not too old to be an entrepreneur.
Companies get downsized, industries are cut back, people retire, businesses fail, some older workers are replaced by younger less experienced staff because they can be hired cheaper.  If you have been caught in one of these scenarios you have a couple of options; quit and take your pension or grab a piece of the entrepreneurial challenge – start your own business.
You are not too old to start your own business.  You now have an opportunity to have a new lease on life – grab it and hold on, it will be a ride.
We know what you are going through from our own experience. This bootcamp is more than a workshop on business; it gives you business skills, it’s inspiring, motivating and will give you a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
