The JumpSTART Experience


“I’ve always wanted to start a business but didn’t know where to start; when I saw the ad for the JumpSTART training I knew it was an ideal platform for me to explore my business idea.”
~ Bernice

“The programme open my eyes about other aspects about business I didn’t have a clue about.”
~Junior Nelson

“The JumpSTART Programme really helped me to reframe my business model from what I thought it should be to incorporating what my customer would want. It helped me to learn a lot more about the people I was serving which allowed me to make the changes that they need and in turn to make my business more successful.”
~ Alyssa

“JumpSTART did just what the name suggests, I was at a point in my business where I did not know where to turn, after joining this program and apply each step back into the business I saw the flaws in my method and I was able to work to improve the business as the class went along.”
~ Thandiwe
