The Centonomy Entrepreneur

The Centonomy Entrepreneur is a 14-week program that helps you build a Great Business.

At Centonomy, we believe that great businesses are not solely defined by their size, industry or popularity but by:

  • The Impact they have on the founder, team, customers and community.
  • The Culture they create- where people work because they want to, not because they have to.
  • How they Create Wealth substantially by having the correct Structures.
  • How they constantly translate ideas into great Opportunities, products/services.

The program takes you through the following:

  • Creating Structures  (making your business run without you)
  • Vision & Strategy ( Identifying where you are going & how to get there)
  • Evaluating Opportunities in your business & Marketing/Selling those opportunities

  • Managing Money in business (paying yourself, understanding income, cashflow & profit etc.)
  • Raising Capital & Attracting Investors
