You don't know what you don't know. This programme will give you insights and tools to help you start your business and accelerate your business knowledge. One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself and your business is learn fast about your idea to give it the best chance of being successful. Too many new businesses fail and many from a lack of knowledge about their market or their business understanding.
Every week your facilitators will guide you through a specific topic and guest speakers, who have been where you are now, will tell you their stories and what they did. CO.STARTERS™ facilitators are experienced business owners from the community who guide participants through the programme by asking the right questions, drawing on the knowledge in the room, and using available resources and connections in the community to point participants in the right direction.
