Become A Supporter
Launch It Program
For our local economy, and community to thrive entrepreneurs need to be equipped with the tools to help them succeed. To this end, CNI Solutions has partnered with CO.STARTERS to bring their community support model and programs to our community.
CO.STARTERS exists to help individuals and communities thrive through entrepreneurship. We are excited to offer their proven models in our community, that are nationally, and internationally known to better support our entrepreneurs, and small businesses. We group each participants into a ten-student cohort for better cohesion and facilitator one on one time.
This three-month, twich-a-week cohort-based program equips entrepreneurs of all kinds with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn ideas into action. We have seven certified facilitators, of which two are fluent in Spanish, and able to assist participants in our Latino / Hispanic communities. This makes our Launchit program ideal for all communities. Our mission is to help stuck people; whether they have a new idea for a venture, or are an existing business looking to become more sutainable, launch a new product, service or scale.
We believe our Launchit program will increase the quality of our local entrepreneurs by teaching basic business skills and helping them develop solid business models. Participants will leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to create a sustainalbe business model, the ability to articulate how their businesses work, knowing the next steps needed to move forward, and a community of peers, mentors, business services, and other supports.
Our focus in on the entrepreneur by helping them to understand their motivations, goals, strengths, and limitations. We identify and test their assumptions while addressing community obstacles and opportunities. We teach them brand identity and the importance of starting small. They understand product distribution, pricing, gross profits, fixed and variable cost, and calculating their break-even point. We teach them how to create a formal business plan, pitch their business idea, and help set milestones. The starters will receive weekly guest speaker presentations from local CEO's and partners. They will also have mentoring and business coaching available to them.
CNI SOLUTIONS believe there is power in working with those who are overlooked!
