Phase One
Pro-Seed Business Model Design:

Pro-Seed Business Model

Built on the successful Business Model Generation approach by Alex Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur, you will begin by using the Business Model Canvas to design a business model that works. Then you’ll map your current business model against the backdrop of your business’ operating environment and generate a S.W.O.T. Analysis. Armed with this information you will be able to create new business models that drive growth and sustainability in your business.

Phase Two
E-seed Express Entrepreneurship Training:

E-seed Express Plan

Immerse yourself in the better art of small business and entrepreneurial management during an accelerated 8-week E-seed series.
