Create your Own Future
by Launching a New Business

Turn Redundancy into an Opportunity

Launching a new business as the world is recovering from COVID-19 and the global economy is in turmoil might not seem like be the best time. However, it is in times of disruption that we see the greatest opportunities as customers’ needs and wants change providing demand for new services and products.

Many companies were started during a recession from the giants like Microsoft and Airbnb through to the wave of new artisanal craft stores that opened up on Etsy or Amazon. SBC RISE the first-ever virtual accelerator can help you validate your idea and turn into an up and running business with revenue in just 20 weeks, through playbooks, digital learning, and peer communities.
