Keys to Success
Employee to Entrepreneur

So you've got a business idea. A brilliant business idea in fact. But you're not entirely sure how to successfully transform it from your gut feeling into a gut wrenching success. Sounding familiar...?

We get it. You settle into the 9-5 grind, imagining you'll turn your corporate experience into a highly profitable business. One day.

Except fast forward and you're still working those hours but... for someone else's highly profitable business. 

Come and spend the evening with us and meet the people who help future business successes, just like yours, every single week. Through a business growth process that gets your business off to a great start they ensure they are paving the way not just to get it off the ground, but for amazing long-term results.​ 

What's in store?

Challenge the experts on stage with your particular problem. Where are you stuck? What are you looking for? Why is success evading you? What's the big break you're seeking? Let the experts give you the tools you need for success.

Honest advice from the ones in the know... We see countless people with significant experience from large organisations with the capability to launch businesses. Managerial experience, negotiating skills, competitive environment should all add up... But often don't. Speak to the people who can identify if your business has the potential to really take off and receive pointers on what could really take you far. 

Experience has also shown us the death rate of businesses started by entrepreneurs from a corporate background is near 100%. Don't become a statistic!

Agenda for the Keys to Success: 

First off a solid dose of learning: We show you what to do. The journey ahead. Why most businesses never succeed. How to leverage your special advantages.

Next up, we have food, drinks and networking. In a room full of entrepreneurially minded people you never know who you'll meet. Your next investor or your next collaborator? That's entirely up to you, but we will do our best to ensure you get introduced to the right people on the night.

Finally: The Panel. All those questions you've been searching for answers. Never quite sure who you can trust in the constantly shifting landscape of early stage business? We bring on stage some of the best, that you know you can rely on. Be brave and bring your toughest question to the panel--they like a challenge!
