Launch Your Startup@WestGate
Firestarter is a cohort-based program that connects entrepreneurs with the resources they need to move their innovations to commercialization. This program covers a wide variety of entrepreneurial topics including business plan development, value proposition, ideation, validation and market discovery.
The overall goal of Firestarter is to help inventors and founders find the value proposition of their idea. The program gives clients the opportunity to explore potential markets, customers and financial models. At the end of the process, each member has the necessary information to decide if there is value in the idea and if it makes sense to continue moving forward.
We started as a group of scientists who took a very steep upward learning curve into handling business because of the Foundry's mentorship, constant advice, and support.
