Development West Coast is excited to announce the first CO.STARTERS cohort for the year will take place in Greymouth, beginning in September, with Westport and Hokitika cohorts beginning in February next year.

CO.STARTERS is a business development program for businesses at all stages, start-up, developing an existing business or looking to regroup and diversify. It is a 3.5 hour per week, nine-week business start up and development program that equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships and tools needed to turn ideas into action and turn a passion into a sustainable and thriving business.

The CO.STARTERS program is facilitator lead, with two experienced business people, who will guide participants through the program by asking the right questions, drawing on the knowledge in the room, and using available resources and connections in the community to point participants in the right direction. In addition to exploring different topics each week, guest speakers are also brought in weekly to enrich and help participants learn from the experience of others in the community.
