PRE-LAUNCH

WHY START?

 

Entrepreneurship has become a buzzword. It represents excitement, success, money, and innovation. Yet, despite the frequency with which the word is used, very few individuals actually make the leap and become entrepreneurs.

 

Indeed, according to the recent Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report, rates of youth entrepreneurship have actually been in decline.  This is puzzling given that according to the GEM youth report, 87% of young people expressed their desire to pursue entrepreneurship at some point in their career.


 

Mindset is EVERYTHING 

Stigma can be the biggest hurdle
Ideas are nothing without implementation
Setback is not failure
It is easier than you think

What are the benefits?

Now is the time

There will never exist a perfect time in your life to get started.

 

Nonetheless, now more than ever exists a time where the risks associated with becoming an entrepreneur are at their lowest.

 

Now is the time to act on it!

Build your network

As a founder your ideas, products, and services are your credentials.

 

You will have the opportunity to enter boardrooms with senior executives, not as an intern, but as a potential partner.

 

With the right skills and ideas, entrepreneurship gives you the opportunity to surpass age requirements and in the process meet business leaders, grow your network, and land investors.

Become a leader

You may or may not have already held a variety of leadership positions in your life.

 

However, nothing is quite like leading a business to success. It requires tact and dedication, and the challenges involved cannot be simulated without active exploration.

 

There simply is no better way to develop your negotiation, leadership, and teamwork skills than through entrepreneurship.

Be your own boss

Last but not least, entrepreneurship can provide the opportunity to become financially independent while being your own boss.

This aspect will be a direct result of relentless hard work coupled with true passion as motivation. Money as a sole motivator will never be enough.

MAXIMIZE MOMENTUM & VALUE
 

To see results, you have to start, and the best way to start is to jump right in and learn by doing. Couple that with someone who can guide you through the unknowns and you'll see your goals come to fruition in waves.

 

So whether you're just beginning or well on your way, see how we can bring a

new level of momentum and value to the table.             

 

 

 


What does the pre-launch road look like?  

YOU BE THE JUDGE

Who are you and who the hell am I? Where do you need help? What can I do for you? Will it help? Why does it matter? Get to know me, get your questions answered and decide if this is right for you.  

ARE YOU TRULY READY?

Ready or just excited? Harsh realities. If you’re mind isn’t set, the rest won’t matter. Truly the most important component through and through- your mindset will be your greatest strength and your greatest weakness. Understand how to master your mind and project a positive, confident image. What you get out of your business in the form of personal satisfaction, financial gain, stability and enjoyment will be the sum of what you put into it. Find your reason for why you’re doing what you’re doing beyond monetary gain.  
 

IDEA FORMATION

What separates a good idea from a bad one? Does my idea need to be revolutionary or simply be better than the others in existence? Is my idea realistic? Distinguish the differences between a realistic and un-realistic idea.

MARKET RESEARCH

What is market research? Where do I start? How necessary is market research? What if I find an idea similar to mine? How & where do I implement what I find? Learn why it's imperative to complement idea formation with initial market research.

MAP IT OUT

What is the lean start-up model? How is my idea a business? What is that business? Does a business “plan” make sense? What form should it take? What should it encompass? Where do I begin? These crucial questions will take time and immense critical thinking and thought process. This is where you'll start to see your vision take shape. Your next steps will become much more apparent. You'll start to understand the importance of prioritisation leading to your execution map.   

BUILDING A TEAM

Do I need teammates? Who should I consider? Who & what should I be looking for? Why does it matter? Is it a bad idea to start a business with a friend? How should I incentivize those I want on my team? Many successful entrepreneurs say that building a strong team is one of the most important components for success. Is that true? Why?

FUNDING, LOGISTICS, PREPARATION

Where and how does equity come into play? What are the legal basics? What does it mean to incorporate a company?  How should I do it? Where should I do it? What is bootstrapping? What is angel funding? What is VC funding? Do I have to raise money? When do I need funding? How do I raise funding? What financial instrument should I be using? What's a revenue forecast? Do I need to have a conservative & aggressive forecast? How do I create a projected cashflow statement? How far down the road do I need to forecast? 3 months? 6 months? 12 months? years? Understand the legal basics. Learn how to create your financial forecasts. Learn which funding path is right for your business. Create and implement your financial instrument into your pitch and business outline.
