A startup is a small business venture or commercial project that you are beginning and hoping to grow fast. Startups require programs and courses of action in order to be effective and have clear, achievable goals. It can also help to collaborate with multiple people and businesses on a startup, in order to have a wide range of ideas and insight, as well as broadening your potential audience and building connections between already established companies and your own.

This is why, for anyone starting up a business or launching a product, you should look into collaborative startup projects such as Hangar 51, an opportunity to work with the International Airlines Group. The project includes the opportunity for mentoring by the heads and CEOs of such accomplished organisations as British Airways and IAG Cargo. The ten week course will help you to model and trial your products, develop a marketing strategy and open up opportunities for investment.

Startup projects such as Hangar 51 are opportunities for the organisers to find the truly ground-breaking new businesses and products to invest in, and gives you the opportunity to receive priceless mentoring and experience. The process of the course has four stages: apply to the project through the website, pitch your idea in person, engage in the programme of research and development, and finally demonstrate the prototype to the mentors who you have been working alongside.

The programme, open to startups of all kinds, will run from the 9th of January until the 17th of March in 2017. It will take place IAG’s headquarters in Heathrow, London, but the course is available to anyone over 18 from any part of the world, as innovation can come from anywhere. The deadline for applying is November 6th 2016, so don’t hesitate; opportunities like this don’t happen every day.
