Culture and Value
The world has changed. Business has changed. How we empower people to get started needs to change, urgently.
The reason we exist
The biggest barriers to getting a business started are: fear, money, and know-how. The traditional approach to getting started teaches business plans, how to access finance, and the legal requirements. The existing start-up support available doesn’t meet the needs of most people, it doesn’t remove people's barriers, it compounds them.
At the Rebel Business School, we teach a sales-based start-up model, teaching people how to launch an ‘experiment’ for little or no money to test their ideas. We have presenters and a support team with real business experience to deliver our free, live courses, both online and in-person within communities.
Our events are engaging, fun and for many, they are life changing. We deliver the information, inspiration, and practical help people need in order to take action. We find sponsors and create local partnerships to ensure that anyone can attend, free of charge. No one has ever paid to attend a course.
Other business support offers exclude people at a disadvantage and some only support those who get chosen. There are no barriers to our courses, in fact, it attracts the people who need it. We are inclusive. We help anyone and everyone who wants to make progress regardless of their situation.
We relentlessly support pre-starts, start-ups, and those that who started but are struggling. We are here for the artists and creatives, the micro-enterprises and lifestyle businesses, the makers, the side hustles, the disadvantaged, and the triers. To give them a voice and the direction they need to move forward.
