Further Faster

The Further Faster program is a seven-week business training program for entrepreneurs at any stage, from idea all the way to scaling, for any type of product or service-based business.

This program is perfect for entrepreneurs starting a new business, considering pivoting or growing an existing business. Your participation in Further Faster enrols you as a client into the Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre (HBEC), which gives you access to all of our events and workshops throughout the year.

About the program

Take your business further, faster

Entrepreneurs can benefit from this program by building strong foundations that create effective, efficient and profitable businesses.

During the Further Faster program, we do a deeper dive into the main pillars that make a strong business.

First is customer discovery – taking a look at whom your customer is and designing that avatar. Then we move into value proposition – what is it that you’re really selling? Finally, deeper dives into marketing, time management, SMART goals, financials – planning out your entire business from A to Z, so that when you go into the market, or if you’re pivoting in the market, you’re going to succeed.

Grand Pitch competition

Pitch your business idea

The culmination of the Further Faster program is the ability for participants to pitch their business.

Every group participates in the one-minute pitch competition.

The top three then move on to our yearly Grand Pitch competition for a chance to win up to $10,000. What a boost to any business, whether you’re just starting out or need to pivot!

Here, entrepreneurs present their pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to win valuable funding for their business.
