The world of franchising feels like a space a lot of members have heard of but know very little about. The reasons we’ve invited Krishma are that she’s independent. She is not here to push you towards any one brand or franchise. She’s here to educate and support. She’s doing this work for us pro bono which tells you something about the sort of person she is. She’s highly respected (look at her impressive bio) and she really knows her market.
We’ll expect to cover:
What is a franchise and how is it different to setting up on your own business?
What to consider when researching franchise options
What are the pros and cons of running a franchise?
How much can it cost to set up a franchise?
How should you conduct due diligence on a franchise
Who is this session aimed at:
The ideal person for this session is someone who wants to be their own boss, but who is unsure what business to do or who hasn’t got a validated business model. If you’re a member that feels like you are an entrepreneur deep down, this would be the perfect session for you to attend. We keep our sessions small so you’ll be able to ask your own questions and get direct and immediate value for your time. The number of people able to register will be limited to ensure fruitful and engaging discussion.
