What is Business Bootcamp?

The Business Bootcamp program is a customised, practical training program for new small business owners. Instead of a book and classroom-based course, the Bootcamp brings together successful local business mentors and dynamic local entrepreneurs to work collaboratively on new businesses; program participants watch video instruction online in their own time, undertake market research with potential customers, and then meet with local business mentors to discuss how to apply what they have learnt to their specific business. The program is designed to help participants ask the right questions as they launch a small business, and particularly focuses on sales & marketing, and financial management.

How much does it cost?

The program fee is $1500, but we can often offer funding options thanks to our community partners, so the final cost to each participant can in some cases be zero.
