  • Interactive and collaborative
    No lectures or just simply sitting in a chair. CO.STARTERS is a facilitated training program not a “class.”

  • Learn important concepts 
    This isn’t about memorizing complex terms–it’s about applying them in real time.

  • Approachable
    You can be a seasoned entrepreneur or new to the game–our curriculum has something for you.

  • Developed and tested
    CO.STARTERS has been refined based on the experiences of thousands of entrepreneurs who have taken the program.

  • Entrepreneur-led 
    Each cohort is facilitated by an seasoned entrepreneur. You are guided through the program and process by a person who has gone through the things you are going through.

  • Built on proven methodologies
    CO.STARTERS is a lean-business program that stresses testing your assumptions, interacting with customers, and focusing on your business model.

  • Action-oriented
    You will not be working on a theoretical businesses idea. Each participant is asked to take concrete steps towards launching or growing their business.

  • Affordable and accessible
    Programs of this caliber typically cost around $1,000 – $3,000. We offer this program for $500 because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to access the tools they need to get started or grow as an entrepreneur.

  • It’s fun!
    We promise you won’t be bored.
