Put your idea to the test.

Join Runway’s Bootcamp.


Are you dreaming of starting your own business?

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, or someone with many new business ideas, this is a great place to start.


What is a Bootcamp?

It’s not physical exertion – BUT rather brain exertion. We put you through your paces to really test that idea and getting you to a point where you have determined whether your idea is ready to pursue or whether you might need some further testing. You may even determine that you should move on to your next idea!

Who is the Bootcamp for?

Anyone with an idea that hopes to turn this idea into a business.


We have recognised that there are lots of people with great ideas out there, but not a lot of support to help validate those ideas. We will provide you with a framework that you can take away and use over and over again on all your ideas.


Over 2 consecutive nights for 4 hours each night. We will be offering these Bootcamps bi-monthly.


Geelong and Ballarat – click ‘Book Now’ to find out when.


In small groups of no more than 8  participants, we will workshop your idea in a supportive yet open environment. We will ask the tough questions, share thoughts and work together as a group to test those ideas.
This Bootcamp is priced at $500 + gst, but the value you get could be a million dollar idea!

I have had an idea in my head for some time now about helping the world reskill faster by quantifying behaviour change after an intervention such as training. The Bootcamp helped me pull that spark of genius (isn’t every business idea?) and provided me a structured way to test the idea, get it down on paper and have actionable activities to move the idea forward.
Next comes the exciting part of bringing that idea to life. So if you are a programmer, data scientist or behavioural psychologist and would like to be part of the journey, drop me a line on LinkedIn.
