Is it free to access the learning materials?

Yes, you access all entrepreneurial content for free. This is not a limited content offer, you get all of it. You will get more personalised support and certificates with premium paid licenses. It is your choice to get these extra add-ons.

Really, all content?

ALL entrepreneurial content without limitation is free once you are admitted and unless YOU choose premium add-ons. In other words, we do NOT provide a free teaser with limited content or a free trial. It is the real entrepreneurial content.

What is the success fee?

If your enterprise developed with our training raises money, we get 10% of the round with a cap (equity-free!). If you get a job from our corporate partner, we charge you 25% of your first salary for 4 months. No funded startup nor a new job means no fee.

FAQ

  • Is there a limitation on the content I can access for free?

    You get progressive access to the same entrepreneurial content as in a premium licence. This means you cannot skip tools or select targeted training modules. You need to advance step-by-step through each tool. If at any time you wish to have add-ons to our free tools or select a specific training, you will be able to opt-in for a fee.

  • What are the actual fees then?

    1) Upfront 9.99 to avoid spammers. If your circumstances do not allow you to pay it, write to us at info@shapinghorizons.org. We will waive the fee. 2) Content: free other than premium add-ons. 3) Success fee: if you get hired by our corporate partners or if you raise money for your enterprise, we charge you a success fee as described in the programme's T&C. We work with you to achieve your success!
