The First Step Business Accelerator Program was designed on request of the Village of Burns Lake and Rio Tinto Canada. The goal was to build out a pilot project with hopes that Rio Tinto would be able to take the program nationally.
We got to work, created a branded program that represents Canadians across this country. The program is designed to be 12 weeks of online course instruction with an additional 3 round tables, for a total program length of 15 weeks. Participants are then supported for 1 year, allowing them to learn the tools and have a partner to rely on while doing that.
The program is unlike any other accelerator. We build custom, professional websites for all participants as well as build out their program promotions that are used across their social channels. They full access to us and our 14 years of marketing and design experience.
