Starting your own business can be a daunting prospect. You might feel like you have this really great idea, but it’s hard to know where to start, where to go and where the money comes from.

It’s easy to associate having to step outside of your comfort zone and face the risk of failure with starting a business. Luckily, the Cofoundery model is designed to reduce these risks significantly.


Here’s why…


You don’t need to quit your job

One of the biggest misconceptions about starting your own business is that you need to stop whatever job you’re doing and focus entirely on your new business. You don’t. Quitting your job creates an unnecessary financial burden and maximises risk. Using the Cofoundery model, you only need to dedicate one day a week to start a business.


You’re no longer responsible for funding your own business

The Cofoundery model eliminates the biggest worry for potential entrepreneurs; money.  Instead of investing your own money into your business idea, you’ll receive mentoring and support to help you pitch for investment.


This investment comes in the form of full delivery team who have experience growing great ideas into successful startup companies. Having this support team allows you as the founder to focus on what you know best; your target users and their problem.


Gain an experienced support team as a partner

Hiring external contractors on a freelance basis is risky. They’re unlikely to share the same passion for your product as their short-term aim is to complete a brief, not to create a successful business.


With the Cofoundery model, you’re gaining a new partner. Your team will share your mutual goal because they’re in it for the long-run.


Your Cofounding team will include…


  • Product Owners
  • Designers
  • Startup Consultants
  • Developers
  • Marketers


You can grow into an entrepreneur

You don’t need to have an entrepreneurial background to be a founder. What you do need, is the passion to become one. Our free mentorship programme will help you get ready to pitch for investment and start your journey to starting a successful business.
