Take your idea to the next level
EnergyLab's Springboard Program helps clean energy entrepreneurs refine their business idea and map the path to launching their company
What the Springboard Program involves
The Springboard Program provides training, a place to work, and coaching to help you stay on track
Over the course of the day we will help you refine your business plan, estimate the size of your potential market and develop a plan for testing your assumptions and gaining traction
After the workshop you will meet with a business coach to discuss your progress against your plan and adjust it if necessary
Hot desk membership*
You and your team will receive free hot desk membership at EnergyLab for three months so you have somewhere to work on your idea

*Free hot desk membership is currently only available in Sydney, but we hope to make this available in other cities soon
