Nova Scotia Business Inc., in partnership with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, is pleased to offer this training to Nova Scotia companies.

‘Business as usual’ isn’t an option, so let’s launch something new. Fast.

The world has changed and now you’re scrambling to adapt. You need to recoup lost revenue, find new distribution channels, and stay top-of-mind with customers.

You’re watching as your peers and competitors move fast and adapt to today’s market, yet you feel kinda stuck. Now isn’t the time for perfectionism. It’s time to take action, try something new, and learn as you go.

We’ll help you figure out how to sell today and delight your customers...without getting overwhelmed by all the tech and marketing stuff.

Lightning Launch is Customer Camp’s newest workshop series. It’s a 6-week business accelerator program that will help you to recreate the magic that you’re known for IRL (aka. in real life) in a low-touch/virtual environment.

Led by Katelyn Bourgoin and Sarah Hart, we’ll start with market research so you can get clear about what customers want to buy right now. Then we’ll hold your hand as you design, build, and launch a new offer… in just 6 weeks.

Who Should Attend

Lightning Launch is ideally suited for leaders of small B2C businesses (e.g. consumer packaged products, personal services, food service, etc.) who need to adjust their business model/customer acquisition strategy and quickly bring a new offering to market.

Please note, only Nova Scotia businesses qualify for this program.
