THE CANTILLON's
BUSINESS CREATION PROGRAMS

Are you an Executive, active or in transition?
Are you committed to take control of your life and become an awesome entrepreneur?

We are serious about your success. We developed structured programs that leverage your experience, knowledge, networks and grit, and transform your intention into a scalable company. Experienced entrepreneurs will give you training, mentoring, tools, tips, legal, accounting and marketing advices that combine the best tools and models, their experience and hard learned lessons. We will reduce the time you need to launch, your risk, and increase your chance of success. All you need to do is add focused hard work.

2 programs:

  1. The Crucible: 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. 

  2. The Collider: 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.

IMPORTANT For French Speakers: "Les supports de nos formations sont en anglais, et les formateurs parlent le Français et l'Anglais ;-)"
