Cora is a trained fashion designer interested in starting a business to sell accessories. These include handcrafted jewelry, hand-painted and printed scarves. She also wants to market casual and comfortable women's clothing, especially suited for women who are conscious of their weight, using flowing silhouettes and cuts that hide belly fat. She knows many other people in her area who are also creative and would like to form a craft collective with them. She would like to develop a website where she and others can market their products.
Neeta is an artist who specializes in painting porcelain and bone china plates, vases, and tiles. She takes custom orders of her work through social media and word of mouth. Her paintings can be used for wall decor, so she's also interested in collaborating with interior decorators.
Stella is a multi-genre artist and designer. She specializes in surface pattern design and would like to license her work to fashion, homeware, apparel, and accessory buyers. She'd also like to set up an online shop for her print design products.
We believe entrepreneurship can be learned. Whether you begin with big dreams and a bare bones business plan, or an idea sketched out on a napkin, the Startup Accelerator focuses on helping your idea come to life.
