  3. Overwhelmed with the complications of registering and launching a business

Then we want to hear from you!

A suite of tools, resources, tips, and tricks you can take with you on your business journey. An understanding of the business fundamentals and how to apply this to your business idea. And most importantly, a new network of likeminded entrepreneurs, facilitators, and mentors you can continue to connect with and an 8-hour session that will leave you buzzing to develop your business!
