Do you have an idea but don’t know where to go? Have you ever dreamed about turning those ideas into a business venture but don’t know how to get started?

Give yourself a chance and turn those ideas into reality by joining the Startup Bootcamp by Darussalam Enterprise (DARe). The Startup Bootcamp is a 100-day accelerator programme for startups. The programme provides a platform for new businesses to grow their products and services while linking them to potential investors. Startups are most vulnerable in their early years of doing business when they’re still trying to find their feet.

The bootcamp acts as a platform for startups where they learn to grow and materialize their ideas by going through the programme. Currently, there are three different bootcamps; Startup Bootcamp, E-Commerce Bootcamp and Microbusiness Bootcamp.

  • Startup Bootcamp

    This is a 100-day accelerator programme for businesses that have the potential to scale rapidly and more into export. This bootcamp features leading business experts from various fields including marketing, legal, branding and finance. During the bootcamp, startups meet every Tuesday night to update their progress. The programme ends with a Demo Day where startups take the stage and pitch to investors.

  • E-Commerce Bootcamp

    Those seeking to boost their business online can only stand to benefit from this three-month bootcamp. The programme is conducted by a leading e-commerce platform from the region. Here, local businesses will learn more about the fundamentals of online business and trading such as online payment, logistics, finance and social media marketing, all of which are essential elements to get right when doing business overseas.

  • Microbusiness Bootcamp

    This bootcamp caters for the needs of micro-businesses which are defined in Brunei as companies with less than five employees. The bootcamp is divided into three separate programmes which are a month each; Women Entrepreneurship Development Programme, Young Entrepreneurship Development Programme and Business Launchpad programme for university graduates. The bootcamp covers the fundamentals for starting a business and the formal processes for registering and operating a business including financing options.

We’re pleased to have been involved in the last Startup Bootcamp which took place from October 2016 to January 2017. Progresif was given the opportunity to provide advice on marketing, legal and finance to budding entrepreneurs and startups.

We’re proud to have contributed to this programme and hope that our knowledge and experience was useful to all startups.
