“The use of “fundamental” to qualify our sessions speaks for itself, but might be incomplete. To my mind, their high value arises from the tailor-fitting of their content and format to the specific needs of our teams Moreover, according to the spirit of CRL team, we always aim to make it interactive and fun!” — Pierre, CRL Incubator Programme Manager
Our CRL Startup Toolkit is grouped under two main sections, Innovate and operate:
- INNOVATE is focused on helping you to understand, consider and decide what it will take to turn your idea into a viable, valid proposition that your customers will want. It covers 8 key topics; from Customers, Consumers & Users to Manufacturing, Sourcing and Supply Chain.
- OPERATE is more about the business, intended to help support with the tools for setting up and shaping business and/ or enterprise operations. The key considerations around building your team, business planning, accounting and raising investment. This section is supported by our great CRL expert supporters, IBB Law, Mathys & Squire, Kingston Smith and KPMG Tech Growth. Alongside our Fundamental Sessions the CRL also runs classes that focus on core supplementary skills such as pitching and accessing finance.
Combining all of these together gives the CRL Startups comprehensive support and guidance to put theory into practical application and kickstart their development process and enterprises.
Stay tuned to hear more about these sessions, some shared content and great startup advice!
