CO.STARTERS AUCKLAND, BROUGHT TO YOU BY MUM'S GARAGE

Starting a business is hard, because most of us have never been taught how to do it.


 CO.STARTERS is a 9-week program to teach you how to get your idea off the ground with the support of an awesome community.


CO.STARTERS is different to other business development programs because of its collaborative, non-intimidating environment. The program is developed and run by a genuine group of people on a mission to help others learn and collaborate to create something awesome.  


You'll walk away with clarity around your business idea, confidence in your ability to execute, a clear actionable plan on how to move forward & lasting friendships to support you on your journey. 


Time to give it a go!


We believe that people are what really matter, more than the ideas they bring to the program. Regardless of what stage you’re at in launching your business, CO.STARTERS will help you find the best way to pursue your dream.

We believe that individuals thrive in the context of community. CO.STARTERS is about bringing people together to learn from one another in order to create a strong network of support for starters.
