No matter your experience or entrepreneurial background, this event will give you the necessary tools and skills to effectively launch a business.

"It is a hands-on program with great support and constant mentorships. Passionate support team and best structure, content and pace. I loved it" ~ Grace

No idea? No problem!

 

If you don't have an idea for a startup, THAT'S OKAY! You just might have your "a-ha moment" startup idea on the first day during our kick-off brainstorming session!

 

There will also be an opportunity for you to choose which startup idea you like the most and join their team. Startup 54 is designed to build a new business with a team, not by yourself.
