Start-ups & Sales
One of the key points on an entrepreneurs journey is the first sale. The first time you hold that $10 profit in your hand. This can turn out to be the catalyst that drives you forward to build your business.
We do everything we can to help people reach their first sale with 34% achieving this during the course!

Impact on capabilities
At the Rebel Business School we track four main figures for people before and after the event. We ask people to rate where they are on a scale of 1-10.
Here are samples of the websites that were built, launched and developed over the course.
It is amazing how having a website so quickly helps people to feel that their business is more real.
Connecting attendees to the local business ecosystem
At the Rebel Business School Aotearoa we make sure new businesses stay connected by providing awareness of business network support in specific areas as needed. These connections are all about enabling business sustainability. Being aware of the Bookkeepers Assn NZ or Business Mentors NZ, for example, can provide business input allowing the business to strengthen its foundations and/or its direction.
