    Grow Your Business

    We help startups and existing businesses create a business model blueprint

    A business model is a description of the rationale of how an organisation creates, delivers and captures value. A business model describes how a company creates an offering, gets it to customers and generates profit from the transaction. The business model canvas is an excellent tool for understanding your current business, for refining a business to make it more profitable, and for designing a new business model. What is your business model and do you know how to leverage new revenue opportunities and create value.

    Develop Your Skills

    We help entrepreneurs and SME business owners develop their entrepreneurial skillset

    What does it take to be an entrepreneur? What skills are needed to be successful? It certainly helps to have strong technology skills or expertise in a key area, but these are not defining characteristics of entrepreneurship. Instead, the key qualities are traits such as creativity, the ability to keep going in the face of hardship, and the social skills needed to build great teams. If you want to start a business, it's essential to learn the specific skills that underpin these qualities, and nurture and improve them before starting your business.

    Leverage Technology

    Implement a technology toolkit and leverage the power and benefits of cloud-based technology

    Many entrepreneurs and SME business owners are seeing the benefits of incorporating cloud-based applications and business processes into their organisations. These technologies are enabling organisations to discover an entrepreneurial spirit and are levelling the playing field with larger corporates by removing initial up-front costs, licenses and hardware requirements. The cloud is enabling a new wave of startups and entrepreneurs to compete in a competitive and often global market. Embrace cloud-based technology and stay ahead of your competition.

    Mentorship

    Like most other things in life, it "takes a village" to succeed as a startup and small business

    Being an entrepreneur isn't an easy job. There are moments that you have nothing and feel like things are never going to getting better. Entrepreneurs are constantly breaking the rules and making mistakes in an effort to drive their businesses forward. There are always situations where you "don't know what you don't know" but you have to stay in motion and make decisions regardless. Without a savvy guide, in the form of a mentor, you may wind up making crucial early mistakes that would have otherwise been avoidable.

    Business Networking

    Networking meetings that allow entrepreneurs & SME's to LEARN - CONNECT - BE INSPIRED

    Have you ever sought advice from the people in a business network you belong to? If not, you are missing out on one of the secondary benefits of being involved in a networking group. The primary reason for networking is to get referrals, but you also gain access to professionals in almost every type of business. Every good network can actually become a type of "mastermind" group that you can tap into to gain more information and knowledge. Networking is an essential skill for most business people, but especially for entrepreneurs.

Simon Sinek - Start With Why

startwiththewhy
Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers -- and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.
