Why it works
Not everyone is ready for a multi-week commitment. CO.STARTERS Bootcamp offers a way to spark momentum in the short term.
The short time frame of CO.STARTERS Bootcamp pushes participants to stop procrastinating and do as much as they can for their business within two days time. Start small, fail fast, grow strong.
This program offers early-stage entrepreneurs a safe space to share, experiment, fail, and learn together. Entrepreneurship isn't a solo sport—the best ideas are often born in community.
The short time frame demands much less capacity from both your organization and the entrepreneur. If they decide their business idea won’t work, they’ll learn that after a few days instead of a few weeks.
CO.STARTERS Bootcamp covers four key areas designed to propel participants forward.
Evaluate the assumptions behind your business model and refine your idea using the CO.STARTERS Canvas.
Learn the basics of crafting a message and building relationships through marketing.
Dive into the building blocks—from your startup costs to your break-even point—needed to understand your business's finances.
Create a plan and stay on track by setting priorities and SMART goals to move your business forward.
