An Evaluation of Efficacy of our Bootcamp Program

We recently completed Round 1 of our Bootcamp Program with 57 businesses from all over Australia as participants. The aim of the program is to help business owners to find out what they don’t know they don’t know, and to see how close they are to being retail ready for major retailers like Woolworths.

One of the wonderful things we observed during Bootcamp Round 1 was the sharing of information between participants. There’s an incredible amount of value in the Seedlab Community we’re building, and as such we’ve sought out evaluations of the program from the participants.

Here’s what our participants had to say when we asked them to estimate the monetary value of their involvement in the program over the next 12 months:

80% of participants estimated that participation in the program will provide

> $5,000

of value in the next 12 months.

25% of participants estimated that participation in the program will provide

> $50,000

of value in the next 12 months.

We couldn’t be happier with this evaluation!

19%

Self assessed improvement in knowledge for how to get feedback from customers and consumers about what they really want/need

17%

Self assessed improvement in knowledge for how to go about developing their business plan

17%

Self assessed improvement in knowledge for how to identify and focus on their target customer

13%

Self assessed improvement in knowledge for how to effectively tell their story, and the story of their business

10%

Self assessed improvement in knowledge for how to pitch themselves and their business

We’re thrilled with those outcomes, and we’re so excited to see the participants put their new knowledge to use in the operation of their businesses in the coming months.

Bootcamp will help you understand how serious you are about growing and improving your business.

We’ve also learned a lot from our participants, and are using their feedback to refine the program and make Bootcamp Round 2 even bigger and better!

The Next Steps

Twelve businesses from Bootcamp Round 1 have been selected for Round 1 of Cultivate, our accelerator program, and four businesses have been selected for Propagate, where they will receive direct one-on-one mentorship for refinement of their businesses and products.
