While working with microbusiness founders through the SpringBoard program, the biggest barriers to successful launch emerged in the areas of customer-focused development and scalability. To meet this need, The Company Lab developed CO.STARTERS, a new curriculum taking the best of SpringBoard and combining it with proven startup methodologies for the high-growth community. Launched in Fall 2013 after several pilot classes and revisions, CO.STARTERS is now poised to help startup communities nationwide.
