Turn your business idea into reality

(without any prior knowledge)

Learn how to start a business with the leading online course aimed at people aged 50+ and benefit from being part of our community of older business owners.

Get started now

We have helped individuals aged 50+ years to learn the essential skills they need to build a company from scratch.

Age is not an obstacle.

Statistics say that one in every five workers aged 50+ is now self-employed. You are not the only one but part of an ongoing trend. You have the skills and the experience to get where you want to be.

Your idea is worth it.

It could be a hobby, a simple idea, or a business you have already started. Perhaps you have retired, been laid off, or fed up with what you're doing - Every idea, any age stage, can be transformed into a profitable business.

You can do it with our help.

We have set up successful businesses and are now in our late 50s and early 60s. As entrepreneurs for over 20 years ourselves, we know what you need and have designed a unique curriculum that will guide you step by step during your business journey.

MORE LOVE FROM OUR PARTICIPANTS

Helen Smith Made of Moxie

For me, it was really useful to have the structure, time and space to question what I was doing and how I was doing it.

Max Wallace Health Defence

Suzanne Noble and Mark Elliott provided me with the help and advice I needed to start my life again and my own company.

Rachel Carrel of Koru Kids

Suzanne has been very generous with advice on PR for our startup, and the advice she has given has been really powerful - practical as well as strategic. Her 'content to time' ratio is incredibly high!

How are we different from others? 


We are like you. 
We acknowledge and understand that what you're seeking at this age from life and from your business is different than when you were younger. That's why our programmes are developed to fit your existing responsibilities. Featuring relatable video content (all captioned and transcribed), group sessions and 1:2:1 support, we help you each step of the way. 

We teach from personal experience. We know that when it comes to courses about starting a business, you've got lots of choices. What makes us different is that, unlike many other programmes taught by academics with no practical experience of running a business, we've both started successful (and not-so-successful businesses).
