Runway Startup Bootcamp

Program information


Two days of hard-hitting facilitated activities that will get you to really think about your idea and the problem you are trying to solve – from a customer’s perspective.

Together, we will validate if your idea is ready to pursue by taking you through a series of frameworks and conversations to help you navigate a process of reflecting and considered thinking.

At a cost of $1100 now – we can save you $$$ down the road by validating your problem, product/service and market fit. 

The program includes two full days of live zoom sessions, from 9am to 4pm. 

There are no more than 10 participants, so we can support each of you individually.

Participants who complete the Bootcamp may wish to join our Incubator program to further progress your idea to launch

Who is it for?

  • Anyone with an idea for a business
  • An existing business that has an idea for a new product or service

Learn and apply the techniques used by successful startups

By the end of the two days, you will have a much better understanding of: 

  • who your customer is,  
  • what are their challenges  
  • how your product/service can fix that challenge 
  • key ingredients to building a pitch presentation for customers, investors and interested parties.

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.

It is a wonderful opportunity to understand the whole process of starting up a business. It is an intense, fast paced bootcamp which is very engaging. The skills you learn can also be applied to your career, not just starting up a business.
