Our Promise to You
We want older people to be able to manifest the life they desire in whatever way they choose. Whether it’s turning a hobby or passion into a business, becoming a consultant, or simply wanting to keep your brain active by joining a community of older current and soon-to-be business owners, we want to see you succeed. Let us provide you with the support you need.
Mark & Suzanne
We have designed, facilitated and participated in many startup programmes and seen how these often fail participants, especially those in the intersections of age, gender, colour, ability and wealth/class.
So, whether your goal is to turn a hobby into a moneymaking project, whether it's about having a burning passion, whether it's just about putting food on the table doesn't matter.
Whatever the reason inspired you to join Startup School, we're going to take you, a unique individual with a personal vision, through the same steps that have helped others reach their goal. Because while entrepreneurial paths lead in different directions, the first steps toward success are always the same.
Suzanne is the ‘connector,’ with a vast range of contacts who, with a background in PR, has used her networking skills to support her own and a number of Startup School for Students business endevours. She also walks the walk, with a portfolio career that includes jazz and blues singing and a TikTok channel with nearly 55k followers. You will struggle to find anyone with an entrepreneurial background similar to her own.Connect with Suzanne on Linkedin
