If these dates and times don't fit into your schedule, please reach out and suggest an alternative time.
How much time is required?
2-3 hours per week. Around 60 mins for the group sessions + time to watch videos and dig into the workbook, and to support your peers. Beyond that, it is up to you and how much time you are willing to put into designing your service concept.
Are there any technical requirements?
You’ll need to have access to a good internet connection, and a quiet space for the weekly sessions.
Do you offer flexible pricing?
We are committed to make the Booster Program available to those who do not have the means to pay the full price. If you are a student, unemployed, or a minimum wage worker - please contact me and describe your situation. We are also offering group discounts for teams from the same organization, and sometimes referral discounts.
Is the course material available after the Booster Program has ended?
The material is available for 2 months after the program has ended. After that, you still have free access to the online community for support and continued learning.
Are the group sessions recorded, in case I cannot join?
Yes, they are recorded and available. However, watching a recording will not fully replace the experience of participating.
Can I attend the Booster Program even if I can’t make it to the weekly sessions?
We don't recommend participating in the Booster Program if you can't make it to the sessions. Making time and space for your idea during these weeks will help you to get the most out of the program.
Can I participate even though I just have a vague idea?
Of course! We have participants in all stages of their business journeys. If you are starting with a vague idea, you will maybe not end up with a full service concept ready for prototyping, but you will have a clear picture of how to move forward with it.
Do I get a certificate upon completion?
Yes, if you complete all parts of the Booster Program you will receive a certificate.
What are your Terms of service?
You'll find them here.
I just want to ask my questions to a real person..
I got to a point in my career where it was time for me to do something for myself and I knew in what direction I wanted to go but I did not know where to start. I was not sure if the idea made sense, if it would be useful, or if people would like it. I was swamped in uncertainty and low confidence.
By joining the Innovation Booster Program I gained the confidence and the motivation I was lacking to have a fresh and concrete start into my own line of services. With the close coaching of Susanna on a weekly basis supported by new tools and customized to my needs, I was building the structure of my product step by step to bring it to reality. I am also extremely happy and lucky to have been part of a professional and like-minded community there.
I encourage every person having the desire to start their own line of business to enroll in the program, I am confident you will be well taken care of and put on the right track.
