CO.STARTERS is a program that equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn their business ideas into action. Unlike traditional platforms, it applies the lean business model methods popular with high-growth startups to businesses of all kinds. Learn the ins and outs of how to turn a passion into a sustainable and thriving small business.

The cost ranges between $275 and $575 and is dependant on your combined household income and total household members. The $125 materials fee is required to reserve your seat. Each cohort meets once a week, Mondays, from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Financial assistance and payment plans are available. There is a non-refundable $25 application fee that is applied towards the total program fee. This payment must be received before your application is accepted.

CO.STARTERS is an action-driven, collaborative process with a small and supportive group of like-minded people. Led by a facilitator who is an experienced entrepreneur, you’ll identify your assumptions about why and how your businesses will work and then talk to customers in order to validate your ideas. This approach enables you to rapidly uncover flaws in your concept and find viable models more quickly. You’ll leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to create a sustainable business, articulate your model, and repeat the process with your next great idea. Participants receive one-on-one time with the facilitators, support from Create Birmingham staff during and post-graduation, membership in the alumni network, and access to the CO.STARTERS Graduate Resources.

While previous cohorts have met in person, our upcoming cohort will meet virtually.
