Our goal is simple - to encourage more people like you to enjoy the thrill and benefits of starting your own businesses, by helping you through the pre-launch process. And we do this - free!
Often, people do not consider starting up in business because they believe it's too difficult, too expensive, they don't know where to start and they don't know where to find support.
What if you had a checklist of tasks needed to launch a new business? An easy-to-follow blueprint that shows you everything you need to know and do to launch your business? Wouldn't that be helpful! That's exactly what StartPad is, although we go a LOT further than this.
Once you've created a free account (by the way, StartPad is 100% free throughout), you'll be presented with a series of modules, including Discovery, Research, Registration, Finance etc, which contain a series of lessons/tasks.
Each of these lessons is designed to move you closer to the launch of your business. StartPad will give you all the information, tools, and resources needed to take that extra step towards launch. This will include tutorials, videos, downloads, documents, books and advice from business pros. At the end of each lesson just tick the checklist of tasks to complete it, and move onto the next.
Unlike some programmes, there is no set timescale for completion. Whether it takes you two days to complete or two months, you can complete it at your own pace, in your own time, for a stress-free experience.
As you progress through the programme, you'll be asked a series of questions relating to each lesson. These questions are pretty clever, because what they're doing is building your Business Plan as you move through the lessons and modules. The answers to your questions are saved to your unique Business Plan, which you can view, edit and download at any time.
