JumpSTART Your Business Dream: Igniting Success

YBTT’s JumpSTART programme is your springboard to business dreams. Fueled by Effectuation, Design Thinking, and the Business Model Canvas, JumpSTART equips you to transform ideas into thriving ventures.

The programme offered a comprehensive package of:

      • Practical Training: Gain valuable skills through interactive workshops covering marketing, finance, and legal aspects of running a business.
      • Expert Mentorship: Benefit from personalized guidance and tailored advice from seasoned entrepreneurs and industry professionals.
      • Pitch Competition: Showcase your business concept to a panel of judges and investors, honing your presentation skills and building confidence.

We proudly graduated two JumpSTART cohorts in 2023, equipping 36 individuals with the tools and support they need to launch and grow their businesses.
