Phase 2: Building a Viable Business

Phase 2: Building a Viable Business

Part 2 of The Startup Series Program, designed for founders who are committed to building a successful company.

Next intake July 2018

This three-month intensive program is designed to teach the fundamental components behind building a high growth, high impact business. The structure of the program focuses on learning and execution. Workshops are held once a week, covering the following topics:

  • Market validation and customer discovery
  • Startup foundations & building a team
  • Building a product
  • Considerations of growth
  • Optimising your customer acquisition funnel
  • Value creation and business model
  • Legal considerations
  • Finance and accounting
  • Analytics and data
  • Raising money
  • Systems and processes
  • Strategy & leadership

Participants are provided with the tools and resources to take learning from the program, turn them into executable strategies and valuable resources that will underpin the development of their company, and execute on the small tasks that compound to create a valuable company.

The primary value proposition behind this program is the simple yet highly effective approach we teach to develop a business. We teach people the fundamental principles behind creating a valuable business and developing as a high performing founder. We understand the optimal balance between learning, building a strategy and then executing for maximising outputs, and we've built this into every element of this program.

This program will provide the knowledge, tools, community and accountability to develop your idea into a growing business, at the necessary pace to ensure that you make the right decisions for yourself and your company.

This program is similar to an accelerator, however, we don't take equity, we give you space you need to make the best decisions and we're optimising for the founders' personal success, rather than investment.
