OUR STARTERS

Get inspired.

Read what our entrepreneurs are saying about their CO.STARTERS experiences.

“You find value in what you already know, what you can share with everyone, and what others can share with you.

Javela Singleton // Gifted Hands Artisan Soap, Village Launch

For me it’s really helpful to be able to tell the people in the CO.STARTERS program that I am doing all of the work alongside them. I started small and am still figuring this stuff out.

Lisa Garner // Garner Blue , The Co

“I thought it would be great to take this concept through the CO.STARTERS process, because I had the idea, but I needed a disciplined way to stick with it and see it through.”

Will Lovelady // Stix N Smoke , The Co
