Our online Strive projects use the power of the internet to offer something really special to anyone looking to start a business. All our Strive advice and training is broken into handy bitesize pieces and beamed to your mobile phone, tablet or computer. Every grassroots entrepreneur is also given a dedicated personal business adviser who’ll help them every step of the way; over the phone, video calls, through our snazzy system and email.
If you join a Strive On-Demand project, we set up a complete training plan which you can log into any time you like. You get complete freedom to progress at your own speed, whenever it suits you to learn, and we’ll be there to help through regular one-to-one catch-ups with your personal business adviser.
When you join Strive Live, you actually join a whole group of people just like you. In addition to all the on-demand content of Strive On-Demand, each week for 12 weeks we meet up online for live training and discussion sessions.
You can tune in and learn by yourself with Strive On-Demand or opt to join a community of start-ups with Strive Live.
Whichever route you choose with Strive online you’ll be your own boss,
you start working on your own business from day one, and we’ll be there to help along the way.
“At first I found doing an online course a bit weird, but I could fill in questions whenever I wanted to, got to watch videos to understand more about business and best of all I got to join the Strive team on Facebook afterwards – where we can all ask questions whenever we want and get advice and feedback.”
“This is truly a programme not to be missed! The CUBE team are so positive. They don’t rush, criticise or give negative feedback. They only remain professional but down to earth and have a great sense of humour. All I can say is that just follow your heart and you will not fail with the CUBE team behind your tail!”
“I would say that it’s the perfect solution to ‘out of collage’ training as it fits around your life, doing this course gives you the tools you need to make it work! This course was perfect for me as it fitted in with my family life as a mum, it gave me the confidence and information I needed to go for it. It’s brilliant!”
The Strive On-Demand programme helps us to support entrepreneurs no matter where they are in the country any time of the day or night. When we created Strive On-Demand we were clear that we needed to keep our training simple, fun and exciting, but be able to reach people over the internet wherever they were.
The programme uses the latest ‘learning management system’ (sophisticated website) to allow entrepreneurs to access webinars, tutorials, guides, templates, quizzes, business plans and message their own business adviser. Many are now accessing the course via smartphones and tablets to learn about their businesses on the go. The online course is enabling people who wouldn’t normally be able to get this type of support to build businesses and create employment for themselves and others.
The magic of any start-up incubator, is the energy, experience and benefits that come from being around other people who are all trying to start their own businesses at the same time as you. With Strive Live, that’s what you get, you get to join a community of people just like you.
Our Strive Live sessions, include live training sessions from real entrepreneurs alongside lots of opportunities for you to swap tips, skills and experience with the other people on your project.
Combining our snazzy digital platform with some good old fashioned one-to-one support creates an incredible way to help grassroots entrepreneurs launch local businesses anywhere.
Our advisers are able to keep track of how every entrepreneur is doing, triggering calls, advice and emails as soon as a start-up needs them. Entrepreneurs can still log in whenever they need and wherever they are, but for up to six months they have a personal adviser able to help them with any problem they have.
