The workshop takes place over a period of 2 months, with one session taking place every Monday.
In highly interactive, facilitated discussions, we’ll walk you through the key elements every startup
needs. You will be introduced to the tools and resources and connect with the community you will
need to ramp up your business.

Each participant may also work with our group of mentors throughout the program as an
additional sounding board.

The course culminates in an optional pitch session before a panel and audience for feedback
and prizes. This course is ideal for mompreneurs who are planning to start a new business, or
those who are in the first 5 years.
