Kicking off this October is the first of our Take Flight Series – designed for females, by females. Hosted by BubDesk, in partnership with Rare Birds, this series brings together a program of learning, first class mentoring, full time office facilities and the infrastructure required to succeed.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve jumped head on in to a new business because it “felt” right without too much consideration for the underlying fundamentals (or the boring stuff). Let’s face it, sometimes when you have an idea you just have to run with it, but we all know that as a start-up you’ll be everything from the bookkeeper, to the social media campaigner, to the payroll officer and everything in between, so if you don’t have the basics down pat you’re going to have to learn them quickly….preferably before the business falls in a heap!
Be a part of history as we bring together some of Perth’s most highly sought after mentors and workshop facilitators as part of a 10 week intensive bootcamp, that will take a select group of small business owners, or those looking to get started, on a journey designed to arm you with everything from business planning & sales pitching, through to branding and trademarking. It will help you with the mindset and knowledge you need to give your business the best possible chance at success. Following this series graduates will have the option to continue on to the more advanced programs that will look at everything from media training to outsourcing manufacture abroad.
Workshops will take place weekly, with mentors available to keep you on track and accountable. Throughout the program you will have full access to the BubDesk office 24/7, so that you can separate work life and home life, meeting room access so that you can meet with clients somewhere other than a cafe and free use of our event space after hours to run your own workshops/host your own parties!
Is This For Me?
- Are you in your first twelve months’ of business feeling a little overwhelmed?
- Are you sitting on an idea that keeps you awake at night, but you don’t know where to start?

- Are you in need of some early stage validation or perhaps even a co-founder?
- Are you so caught up in your passion for work that your home life is suffering?
Yes, this is for you.
