What is the Further Faster Business Program?
The Further Faster program is a 7-week business training program for entrepreneurs at any stage, from idea all the way to scaling, for any type of product or service-based business.
Entrepreneurs can benefit from this program by building strong foundations that create effective, efficient and profitable businesses.
During the Further Faster program, we do a deeper dive into the main pillars that make a strong business.
The program is perfect for entrepreneurs starting a new business, considering pivoting or growing an existing business. Your participation in Further Faster enrolls you as a client into the Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre, which gives you access to all of our events and workshops throughout the year.
“First is customer discovery – taking a look at whom your customer is and designing that avatar. Then we move into value proposition – what is it that you’re really selling? Finally deeper dives into marketing, time management, SMART goals, financials – planning out your entire business from A to Z, so that when you go into the market, or if you’re pivoting in the market, you’re prepped for success”
