Disability Incubator Series – How to get started



05 October 2022

There has never been a better time for creativity and innovation in disability services and products. People with disabilities are actively seeking new opportunities and better businesses to support them to achieve their goals and thrive in life.

But standing out requires more than a big marketing budget. These customers are looking for authenticity, integrity and genuine personalisation.

This webinar will introduce you to the opportunities to start, build or branch into the disability sector, with innovative services and products that people with disabilities really value. Led by Verge Collaborative director Nat Ellis, you will hear from successful start-up entrepreneurs willing to share their expert advice.
