Take time to work on your business today!

What is the Further Faster Business Program?

The Further Faster program is a condensed business training program for entrepreneurs at any stage, from idea all the way to scaling, for any type of product or service-based business.

Entrepreneurs can benefit from this program by building strong foundations that create effective, efficient and profitable businesses.

During the Further Faster program, we do a deeper dive into the main pillars that make a strong business.

The program is perfect for entrepreneurs starting a new business, considering pivoting or growing an existing business. Your participation in Further Faster enrolls you as a client into the Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre, which gives you access to all of our events and workshops throughout the year.
