Can Starters Station help me?
No matter where you are in your startup journey (a student, starter, restarter) – we can help guide you into finding a proven framework that works for you.
What is a consult?
A consult is an advisory meeting with one of our experts, a scan of you, your goals, and your project or business.
Which package is right for me?

Depends on your goal – if you want to chat and get inspired while getting an outline for your next steps, 'Get Ignited' is right for you.

If you are a Do-It-Yourself type who is looking for someone to check and validate your idea while you move forward in your (re)startup journey – then our 'PED Program' is your best fit.

However, if you want to Do-It-Together with the full support of a startup expert who makes a detailed strategy for your business to succeed while checking in at crucial moments – then 'Deep Dive' is for you.

We are flexible – if you decide you need more help along the way, then upgrade your package by just settling the difference in pricing with us.


Take advantage of the knowledge of a group of experienced starters who have learned by doing (failing and succeeding). Increase your chance of success by becoming more entrepreneurial while starting up your new business.
