Topics We'll Cover

Our curated workshop series will provide you with the right foundation to leverage Embarc Collective's extensive suite of resources.

Each workshop is led by members of the Embarc Collective coaching team; our coaches have collectively worked with thousands of early-stage companies, and our frameworks and tactics are rooted in first-hand experience.

After the program, you'll gain access to Embarc Collective's comprehensive body of customized support.

What time are the sessions?
Our sessions will meet virtually every Wednesday from 12-1pm.

I'm not full-time on my business yet, can I still participate?
Yes! This program is created for full-time or part-time Founders.

Is there a cost to participate in the Foundations Program?
The cost to participate is $300, paid in two installments. After the program concludes, you will have the opportunity to continue membership, including access to our bench of in-house coaches, regular programming sessions, 32,000 sqft state-of-the-art facility, community, and a digital repository of high-quality resources. 

Do I have to attend all of the scheduled live sessions?
Yes - there’s no substitute for the magic of learning together with your peers! You'll receive access to session recordings after successfully completing the program.

What opportunities will I have to engage with other members of the cohort outside of weekly sessions?
You'll have access to a private community space on Slack exclusively for students of the Foundations Program. There you can share your progress, get feedback, ask for help, and more.
