Feedback from Cultivate
“I spend time working ON the business weekly, which means instead of running around like a headless chicken without any real direction, I now have action plans in place”
“I feel like a real business! I’m more confident in what we are offering and have a plan to go forward and know where I can go for help and or resources”
“We are now planning for how and why our business operates and not just that it does operate. This gives us more strategic options for where the business is going long term”
Sometimes your target market or packaging might not be exactly on point. This is why MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is important. Start with something and then make gradual changes

"Bootcamp forced me to take a look at our business from a different and perhaps more personalised perspective, which can only be useful"
Justin Birchmore – Academy al Funghi, Launceston.
"The Seedlab Bootcamp was a great supportive kickstart for the budding entrepreneur. Athough centred on Agribusiness, this methodology should become mainstream education for future small business kickstarters.."
