dream design surf 10 Week ONLINE START-UP PROGRAMME
Starting new ventures is risky, there is uncertainty, all kinds of things do not go according to plan. many new businesses fail.
The Dream Design Surf Programme is for all of those who are starting new businesses, particularly those in science, engineering or technology. Introducing a practical “design” approach to creating new ventures, Dream Design Surf shows you how to move rapidly and with lower risk from idea to high impact global business.
I have developed this programme to transfer my experience to other entrepreneurs and to help them achieve success faster and with lower risk. There is an art and craft to creating new ventures that can move rapidly from idea to high impact global business. New ventures can be designed for rapid growth, scalability and lower risk. New ventures can be designed for success. This is the purpose of this 10 week programme.
I have been an entrepreneur for a long time. It’s not just what I do for a living, it’s the way I live. I specialise in ventures in science and technology, typically with some chemistry at the heart.
I have founded or co-founded four companies since I immigrated to the UK 19 years ago. I have taken two companies public, one in advanced materials, the other in pharmaceutical technology, both operating internationally and raising over £40m in funding. One of my companies went into administration. The lessons from my successes and, more importantly, from my many failures, have shaped my approach to business.
The DREAM module aims to help you harness your ambition and establish your vision, ultimately aiming to strengthen your resolve and move you into action.
The DESIGN module introduces my five design principles to enable you to create and build lower risk, high growth, high impact ventures.
Finally the SURF module introduces my start-up management philosophy and approach to get you up and going.
