3 days to stress test your idea
If you need to stress test your idea, to make sure you get it right, that you thought of everything, you can join The Crucible to be bombarded by questions, knowledge, and expertise, and build a state of the art business plan that takes into account your team strength, your risk profile, design thinking, customer acquisition costs, value creation based multi tarif pricing, a five year cash flow projection, etc.
3 months to launch your business
If you already have a business plan that takes into account your team strength, your risk profile, design thinking, customer acquisition costs, value creation based multi tarif pricing, a five year cash flow projection (...), and need to launch now, The Collider will get you accelerated, and save time, money, and effort.
Entrepreneurship is a set of learnable skills and 80% of the mistakes that cause startup failure can be avoided.
