Imagine that you have a fantastic career-defining idea that is exciting, dynamic and disruptive. It needs to be more than just an idea… but how do you take it from conception to launch and potential global success?
Say hello to the G-Accelerator Program at GBSB Global and take the essential next steps that will allow your flourishing idea to become a fully-fledged business start-up.
This innovative program is all about helping current students and graduates launch their start-ups in technology, entrepreneurship, business, in fact, in any industry where you can turn the tables and build a whole new table!
Within the program, students will work with expert faculty members, mentors and advisors who can assist you in taking your idea from a seedling to its fully realized potential.
GBSB Global mentors are on hand to advise, support and lead you toward the best practices.
What makes an idea successful, how to adapt your idea, understanding the supply chain and financial implication, plus legalities – all these essentials and more are covered with G-Accelerator. The program offers training, mentoring, networking and even financial support, where applicable.
Students will get to grips with market planning, testing, integrating customer feedback, product development strategy and resource planning for business growth.
For Anna Comas Rabell, Winner of Best Start-up in the Pre-Seed & Seed Category, Impact Call 2020-21, the program was exactly the impetus she needed.
“The Impact Call program provides budding entrepreneurs with vital knowledge for substantial project development. I have learned from each module, particularly interested in those focused on societal and environmental impact, such as the Fundamentals of Social Innovations and Social Entrepreneurship module by Richard Hazenberg from the Institute for Social Innovation and Impact at the University of Northampton. Mentoring was fundamental to the program and has been of invaluable help to us, the beneficiaries, as we gained professional advice tailored to each individual project. The high level of program exigency and the fact that your idea can take a 360º turn from one day to the next, have generated many moments in which I had fears and doubts, where mentors helped us get up and keep moving forward.”
