The Generator Founders Program

The Generator has partnered with Startup Onramp and Split Spaces to deliver the Founders course.

If you have been sitting on an idea for some time or have a startup that needs a bit of a boost, we highly recommend you join our 2021 Generator Founders Program.

The Founders Course is a practical, video-based online course to show you how to start a startup and maximise its chances of success. For startup founders with global ambitions, and anyone with an idea for a startup.

In addition to the world class content, you will also be invited to our weekly sessions (online and in-person) to discuss each week’s learning, gain insights from others, as well as make amazing local connections with fellow entrepreneurs.

What is the Generator Founders Program?

The Generator Founders Program is a combination of online learning and weekly group sessions. You will learn at your own pace throughout the course and we are offering a dedicated drop in session at the Generator every Thursday from 2pm to 3:30pm for the duration of the course to allow for a group or individual discussion on the course content specific to your idea.

The Founders Program is for early stage startup founders with global ambitions, and anyone with an idea for a startup with high growth potential.
