Our Modules

CERI is unique.  We are unlike any other startup hub or shared workspace.  We are focused on education and will provide access to specialised training modules and experiential learning, so our attendees develop an understanding of the mindset and skills essential to success as a high-impact entrepreneur.  Our sessions are facilitated by our internationally trained presenters and real world entrepreneurs and business professionals, to ensure our CERIans have access to the most experienced team and up-to-date information.  The knowledge gained during the program is process driven and adaptable so it can be applied to any discipline or career path.

Our program features the three critical stages of the entrepreneurial journey, taking you form researcher to founder. 

“What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the world.”

Simon Sinek
