The Mid-career Entrepreneurs Program
Many mid-career staff and managers are seeking alternatives to traditional salaried employment. These reasons range from a long-held desire to create and run their own business through to a perceived necessity due to current and future economic or market conditions.
There are pros and cons associated with launching a new venture mid-career. Unlike recent graduates, mid-career staff and managers bring a depth of real-world experience and knowledge gained from participating in the workplace. On the downside, they may feel out of touch with some of the language and fads associated with many start-ups. Regardless, of what stage someone is at there will always be a range of potential opportunities but also a long list of reasons to feel unsure.
The mid-career entrepreneurs program is designed with individuals at the mid of their careers in mind. Created by people who have developed and sustained their own businesses, it offers the required knowledge and skills to make a realistic appraisal of a business opportunity, develop a plan and then set about to make it happen.
