Event description

Description

It’s a great time to establish a new business. Opportunities are plentiful, and market access has never been easier. Despite this, the rate of failure is still incredibly high. Starting a new venture of any description is risky and difficult, however, there are a number of fundamental capabilities that will drastically increase your chance of success.

In this 2-day bootcamp, you’ll get the tools and resources required to successfully establish a purpose-driven business from idea conception, through to market launch.

You will learn from an experienced coach and early stage entrepreneurs to create clarity around your business concept and learn strategies for validating it within the market.

The bootcamp will equip you with entrepreneurial tactics to foster initial traction and fast growth, and develop the entrepreneurial mindset, grit and discipline needed to successfully execute your ideas.

The Starting a Start-up bootcamp is designed for:

__ Aspiring entrepreneurs with an idea, passion or burning desire to start their own business.

__ Mid-senior level professionals looking to find more purpose and meaning in their professional lives, capitalising on the skills and networks they have to strike out on their own.

__ Business advisors and coaches looking to better understand the realities their clients go through in creating new businesses of their own.

Participants will also receive 6 months access to Plato Project’s online course (valued at $199). The course includes over 40 hours of online learning content and 80 tools and templates to support the journey from idea to reality.
