Gluggers, listen up!
We're so so excited to see that our very best pals The Trampery are announcing the launch of their early-stage entrepreneurs and creative professionals programme:
The Trampery’s Pathways Programme.
Pathways is a brand new experiential initiative that caters to each individual entrepreneur with their own needs, motivations and experiences. The programme has been crafted using The Trampery’s established human-centric approach to curating workspace communities, developed over the past nine years.
Part-funded by the ERDF, the Pathways Programme will provide three-months of business support focusing on the entrepreneur as a human. Workshops and masterclasses will take a completely different approach to entrepreneur support, avoiding formulaic classroom-style teaching and instead built around experiential learning.
The first Pathways Programme is open to creative entrepreneurs of all disciplines and will be followed by subsequent cohorts running up until mid-2020, dedicated to fashion, tech and the arts.
In addition to the Programme, two-day Pathways Decelerators will run several times a year providing a space for entrepreneurs to step back from their everyday busyness and to pause, reflect and reprioritise their motivations and goals.Over the course of the next three years Trampery Pathways aims to help 250 London-based early-stage entrepreneurs.
Charles Armstrong, founder and CEO of The Trampery said:
“Conventional entrepreneur support programmes assume the only thing an entrepreneur cares about is making as much money as fast as possible. There’s also an assumption that entrepreneurs are ready to sacrifice every other aspect of their life and well-being to achieve this. Based on eight years experience running The Trampery and working with several thousand talented entrepreneurs, the reality is far more nuanced.
Trampery Pathways turns the conventional approach on its head and focuses on entrepreneur as a human. It gets to grips with the motivations, personality and well-being of the individual entrepreneur and helps them develop business strategies that are aligned with their deeper goals.”
Entrepreneurs selected to participate in the programme will join Enquiry Groups, workshops on business planning, motivations, pitching and wellbeing and will have access to The Trampery’s established network.
The programme is being delivered with the support of partners The Human Energy Company, Capital Law, Capital People, Robinsons Accountants, The Guild of Entrepreneurs and Accenture.
