Startup School for Seniors

Are you feeling stuck and unfulfilled in your current job?
Perhaps you’re considering venturing out on your own but need guidance on how to get started.
Maybe you’re looking for a side gig to supplement your income due to the rising cost of living.

If any of these situations resonate with you, then you should definitely check out Startup School for Seniors. This programme offers courses specifically tailored for individuals aged 50 and above who want to transform their ideas into profitable ventures.

Startup School for Seniors was created by Suzanne Noble, a seasoned entrepreneur, and Mark Elliott, a business coach. Their programmes are funded by the government and have been designed to be flexible enough to accommodate your lifestyle.

The courses consist of pre-recorded videos, personalised mentoring sessions, and peer support. They have successfully helped hundreds of people in their 50s and beyond to monetise their existing expertise, skills, or hobbies.

Suzanne Noble, one of the course creators, explains, “Many participants in our programme are currently employed full-time but are contemplating their next phase in life. Based on my personal experience, I know that it can take up to two years to generate a full-time salary, so it’s important to plan ahead. Starting with a side gig is often the best way to test the viability of your business idea without taking on excessive risk by quitting your current job.”

The course covers all the essential aspects of starting a business.
You’ll learn how to identify your target customers, locate them effectively, determine appropriate pricing strategies, develop marketing and branding techniques, and address any legal requirements your business may have.

By the end of the programme, you will have created a concise one-page business plan and gained the confidence to take the next steps towards your entrepreneurial journey.

Courses run throughout the year. Go to to find out more and register for the next available programme.
