Rebuild gave me something tangible to work on. I’ve had ideas and half-executed a handful of them. The Rebuild Program was helpful and forced my motivation to complete projects and really look at my business.

I cannot wait to apply these business principles to my business model. I am getting to know my business better than before this program. Furthermore, I am learning that I have more control over my business than I realized.

What stage or type of business will benefit from REBUILD?

Rebuild is designed for existing businesses who are in the operating stage. If someone is in the concept stage and hasn’t launched, other CO.STARTERS programs may be a better fit. Rebuild is intended for early or small stage businesses from any industry or market, including solopreneurs or freelancers. It is not optimized for high growth companies or entrepreneurs seeking investment.

I'm not sure if I can commit to the full program. Can I do part of it?

Rebuild is for committed entrepreneurs who want and need help, and a commitment to all sessions is required. We believe your wellbeing and your business are priorities, and we trust you’ll find the few hours you spend each session with your peer group working on your business problems together will become one of the most valuable and fulfilling parts of your routine.

Why the program length? This seems like an intense time commitment.

Rebuild typically runs 10 weeks but can be offered in as few as 5 by running 2 sessions per week. If you are serious about saving your business but don’t know what to do, Rebuild is well worth the time. The approach we use with Rebuild is a trusted model of providing deeper support for a longer period of time, which helps reduce overwhelm and allows entrepreneurs to tackle issues one step at a time with valuable peer support.
