Feedback from previous attendees on StriveLive courses:

 “The support and understanding of the team was invaluable in helping me through these early stages of business. Awesome experience knowledge and ideas gained”

“Amazing experience from start to finish, loads of knowledge taken onboard and support from the hosts were so helpful!”

“Do it, before Strive everything I was wanting to do felt like an “if”. After the course, I have focus, direction, loads of information and a documented plan! Now for me it’s a “when” not an “if”. It gets you excited, motivated and the best decision I made to apply. So get on it!

“Do it. It is a light touch course which is excellent at covering most of the key aspects needed to focus on when starting a business”

“I was hesitant to join due to time pressure, it being on zoom and at 7pm. However, it has been one of the most useful courses I have participated in. It really is worth your time. The people have been so supportive and encouraging.”
