This fun and immediately useful, three-hour, hands-on workshop is designed to “kickstart” those who have a business idea or “jumpstart” those who would like to grow and expand their business through a new product and or service. Whether you’re just getting started, stuck on a particular issue, or in need of a refresher, this workshop will provide the fuel needed to get you moving. This workshop is a low-commitment opportunity to understand what’s driving you, explore your idea through the CO.STARTERS Canvas, and refine your model by learning ways to get meaningful customer feedback and start pursuing your idea today. You’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate with other members of the community and make valuable connections to help you along the way.

  1. Explore Your IdeaLearn how the CO.STARTERS Canvas can help get ideas out of your head into a format that can be refined over time. Dive deep into understanding your customers.
  2. Refine Your ModelOnce ideas are mapped out on your Canvas, learn how to use customer feedback to refine them. Y0u’ll learn how to start small in order to get in front of customers sooner and begin testing their ideas.
  3. Define Next StepsAs the workshop concludes, you will come up with actionable steps that can be taken in the next hour, day, week, and month to move your ideas forward.

We look forward to sharing with you!

REGISTRATION FEE

There is a non-refundable $15 registration fee. This payment must be received before your application is accepted.

Create Birmingham’s expansion of the CO.STARTERS program is made possible in large part thanks to a Building Opportunities for Lasting Development (BOLD) grant from the City of Birmingham’s Department of Innovation and Economic Opportunity.

Join us for a panel of CO.STARTERS graduates, CO.STARTERS in Communities team members, and Create Birmingham staff as we discuss the journey of starting, growing, and sustaining a business in the City of Birmingham.

We want you to GET TO KNOW US!

We are excited to bring CO.STARTERS, a program for entrepreneurs, to the North Birmingham and Pratt/Ensley neighborhoods!

This initiative, in partnership with the City of Birmingham's B.O.L.D. program,  gives us a chance to “Put People First” as Mayor Woodfin has mandated by serving residents, existing small business owners, and aspiring entrepreneurs in these communities to reduce or eliminate barriers to starting and growing businesses.

We even get the opportunity to partner with The Dannon Project to design a track for re-entering residents.

So come by and bring a friend!

CO.STARTERS equips entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn ideas into action. Facilitated by an experienced entrepreneur, you’ll identify assumptions about why and how your ventures will work and then talk to customers to validate your ideas. Learn the ins and outs of how to turn your passion into a sustainable and thriving venture.
