LeapIN 2024: The series

Episode 1: Week 1

 We are so excited because our favourite time of the year is here: our LeapIN 2024 incubator program! Full of so much energy and happiness, we welcome our leapers.

By the end of our 12-week program, the goal is for the entrepreneurs to gain deeper insights into their businesses and personal growth journeys. We're excited to share more about their progress, so stay tuned as we feature one business from our cohort each week in this series. 


Day 1: The Journey Begins Today! 

Day 1 was a great beginning for the LEAPers. We got to learn more about their passions and the goals that they have for their businesses. We had the pleasure to have Jerry Hall joining us this day and share more about having a growth mindset. Jerry also provided aspiring entrepreneurs with tools and strategies to strengthen their inner game. The response he received was overwhelmingly positive, leaving him feeling incredibly encouraged for the future.

Day 2: “DONE is better than PERFECT.” 

On day two, we held an activity where the LEAPers opened up to talk about their fears and curiosities about opening a business or starting from scratch.  

Day 3: “… and this is why I succeed”  

Many aspiring entrepreneurs often grapple with the apprehension of failure when embarking on a business venture. However, on the third day of LeapIN, participants discovered that failure isn't necessarily detrimental; in fact, numerous accomplished individuals have experienced setbacks before achieving success.  

Why business fail: 

  • Not prioritizing customer needs 

  • Conflicting incentives 

  • Hidden assumptions 

  • Copying competitors

It was an amazing first week! Full of fun, learning, new friendships, but above all, full of new challenges.
