We love questions and are always happy to provide the answers. Here are some common questions people have before signing up:
I don’t have a business idea yet, or I have 2 or 3 ideas, is PURPOSEFUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP right for me?
If you don't yet have an idea but want to go from "wanna-preneur to entrepreneur," reach out to Jeff directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can go through an idea generation process together. You won't be an ideal fit for the program until you have a single idea you want to focus on. Same holds true for those of you with multiple ideas. Successful participants have one idea they pursue. Also, consider our Purpose Accelerator if you are unsure about having an idea you want to pursue vs. working in a startup.
How is PURPOSEFUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP different from an accelerator?
Accelerators assume you are fully “ready” to be an entrepreneur. PURPOSEFUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP is about getting you ready: preparing you mentally – shifting your mindset from thinker to doer, providing you a framework for prototyping your design, and surrounding you with a network of mentors and peers that hold you accountable to taking action every day.
What outcomes should I expect?
Change comes in different shapes and sizes for different people. Here are a few of the outcomes our program participants have already experienced:
Scott overcame internal obstacles and fears about what was holding him back and moved forward building the life and freelance career he wanted to lead
Winthrop learned how to create and test his MVP - minimal viable product - making huge strides in his ‘Project X’
Krystal got the support of a passionate community and a network of mentors, entrepreneurs and designers.
I’m going to miss a few sessions – is it worth it?
10 weeks of availability – in a city like New York – is often impossible. We ask that you commit to attending 80% of the sessions. We post notes from the session you miss on an internal site to keep up to speed, and your accountability groups stay connected throughout the week ensure you are progressing.
