    We worked with experienced entrepreneurs and business owners to design a course that teaches the fundamentals to overcome the hurdles and launch their business.

  • q-iconHow long will the course take to complete?

    Conveniently, it turned out that you can condense the business journey into 84 essential steps. And for determined business owners, if you can complete each weeks steps, then day by day, you’re building your business until one morning, on the 14th week – you wake up and realize that you’re ready to launch a serious business.

  • q-iconHow does it work?

    As per the course content list above, the Collaborate to Launch course is split into 14 weekly modules. When you sign up, you’ll be enrolled into the online course and we will guide you week by week with concepts, tools, optional webinars and specific tasks to complete which will build your knowledge and your business. You will receive one weekly email giving you an overview of the topic you’ll be focusing on for the week (for example customer acquisition), a summary of specific tasks for the week along with a quick glance of what was covered the previous week and what is coming up the following week so that you always know the relevance and how all the pieces come together.

  • q-iconWhy is it only available one week at a time?

    To help you maintain the laser focus required to execute on your startup, each new module will only be released weekly so that you don’t skip steps and jump ahead too quickly — we know how eager entrepreneurs are but we need to ensure you execute the tasks properly to achieve success! Once you’ve done a module it stays accessible forever so that you can go back to it anytime in the year when you need a refresher.

  • q-iconHow many hours a week will I need?

    We realise that you are busy and likely to be working through this course in addition to some other work or study. Because of that we have tried to limit each weekly module will take approximately 5-10 hours to complete.
