We're Helping to Grow These Great Businesses

professional Support

Freedom Cafe supports community members through workshops, networking events and drop-in mentoring sessions. We also provide development programs designed to turn novice business owners into capable and confident entrepreneurs, and growth programs to take your budding business to the next level.

Need support for your business? We’ve got everything you need!

Our business support consists of professional services that are performed on your behalf as well as a wide range of networking events, workshops and training opportunities to help novice business owners develop the expertise they need to make a business run profitably. This creates a robust business that can thrive, and have value once the owner wants to sell or retire. Our Founder’s Forum is a perfect example of the kind of support we offer. It consists of weekly sessions in which experts help you develop your business plan, marketing strategy, and create messaging that resonates with your target audiences. We help you determine what needs to be done, then we help you do it, with clear goals and time frames in place to measure your success.

business services

Being self-employed does not mean doing everything yourself. And now, EXPERT assistance for your business is more accessible and affordable than ever before…

One of the most common reasons that small businesses fail is because their owners take on far too many responsibilities. But, the fact is, there simply aren’t enough hours in a day to perform all the different tasks needed to make a business flourish – even if you possess all the necessary skills. You also need to make time for your family and for yourself, because your health, happiness and success depend on it. At the Cafe, you can get the business support services you need – provided by experts – and delivered affordably via our unique monthly plans that spread out costs to stay inside your budget!

workspaces

Having trouble staying focused when working from home? Feel panic when a client says, “let’s meet at your place?” Not to worry. Freedom Cafe has the perfect space for you and your team.

Come and work in a relaxed and productive environment, or invite clients to come and meet with you in one of our private meeting rooms. Need event space? You can host up to 50 guests for seminars, workshops and larger meetings in our largest room. Any of our workspaces can be booked for one-time use, or for regular access through one of our affordable and customizable monthly service plans. Find your focus at Freedom Cafe!

founder's forum

Are you a new business owner struggling to get traction – still trying to create opportunity and income so you can continue to build your business? If you are, then our Founder’s Forum is just what you need.

The Founder’s Forum is a 90-day structured program consisting of weekly management meetings in which you and two other business owners receive hands-on management and marketing training here at Freedom Cafe. Coaching and mentorship are provided by industry experts, typically with decades of experience in building and helping to grow successful businesses.

The program is designed to turn new and novice business owners into capable and confident entrepreneurs, and to ensure that by the end of the program you are generating more revenue for your business than you were at the start.

Some of the key things you will take away from the Founder’s Forum include:

·        Foundations for a detailed business plan
·        A marketing plan for the next 12 months, specific to your business
·        New networking, prospect and contact building skills
·        A social media marketing plan and calendar
·        Identification of new customers and opportunities
·        Positioning and messaging for your website and other collaterals
·        Basic financial literacy with income statements, balance sheets, etc.
·        A purpose, direction and clear goals for the future of your business

COACHING AND MENTORING ARE SPECIFIC TO YOUR BUSINESS

Rather than give you some generic marketing plan template – which can be downloaded almost anywhere – we build a plan WITH you, specific to YOUR business, and one that YOU WILL USE in the weeks and months to come.

ENROLLMENT IS STRICTLY LIMITED.

To maximize individual attention, enrollment in the Founder’s Forum is restricted to THREE individuals per 90-day term. Expect homework and action items for your business, because in this program you don’t just learn how to manage your business, you start putting your newfound knowledge and abilities into practice.

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR OUR SUMMER 2019 SESSION.

We’re offering the upcoming Founder’s Forum for the special introductory price of $1500 ($500 per month paid monthly). To qualify, you must first complete our application form. Applicants will then be asked in for a pre-selection interview, and from that pool of applicants, three business owners will be offered spots in the Forum.

DON’T MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HELP GROW YOUR BUSINESS WITH EXPERT COACHING AND MENTORING. APPLY TODAY TO BE ONE OF OUR NEXT FOUNDER’S FORUM PARTICIPANTS!
