Pre-Accelerator

The Ideas Runway connects ambitious ideas-people with thought-leaders and experienced entrepreneurs and teach the startup methodology to help them become more versatile. We help aspiring entrepreneurs refine their ideas to build their business idea prototype into a fully fledged startup. 

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. Learn a proven system, to put your ideas through and come out at the end with clarity on how to move forward.

Through a series of five, weekend 4-hour sessions, our experienced entrepreneurs will teach you the skills and techniques to test an idea, understand its potential, and learn key steps to getting it off the ground.

Attend our free 2 hour masterclass to learn if this is the right course for you.
