Not all applicants must be early stage startups. Our program accepts Small Business Owners and Startups of all shapes and sizes due to the overall mission of Master The Talk Consulting, our partners and our sponsors; to economically support and empower entrepreneurs all over the world.

We work with 3 major Startup stages:

1) Pre-Startup: Needing marketing plans, branding strategies, incorporating, legal/financial assistance, structure set up and design for company identity.

2) Mid-Startup: Scale your business with business development experts, sales, pr, marketing, and partnerships.

3) Operational-Startup: Operationally achieved traction and searching for funding, partnerships and press.

Our 12-week fee is $10,000 per participant (3-month payment plan available), per startup. Additional team members are only $500 with limited access. This is due to capacity restrictions as we are limited to how many people we can on-board for the program.

At this time, due to limited space, the Startup Igniter Program is only accepting a small cohort of 5 participants. Applications will be reviewed and if you qualify, a coordinator will reach out within 48-72 hours of submitting this application. Thank You.
