CERI is a social enterprise supporting the next generation of Western Australia’s entrepreneurs. CERI programs are curated to educate and empower early-stage entrepreneurs, PhD students and visionaries within the Western Australian community.
Enabling the Industries of the Future
CERI offers a range of services to help startups grow. From education to mentorship, workplace residency, industry exposure and access to an extensive network of experts and like-minded people. CERI is an honest broker, taking zero equity in the businesses it supports.
CERI offers three levels of program; the Entrepreneurial Mindset Bootcamp, Concept to Creation and the Malka Foundation-supported Customer Development Masterclass. The Entrepreneurial Mindset Bootcamp is a two-day, hands-on training course exploring the mindset and tools which allow entrepreneurs to proactively seek solutions to real-world problems. Concept to Creation covers a diverse range of business skills to help participants navigate their entrepreneurial journey. Finally, the Customer Development Masterclass encourages startups to validate and address new customer markets.
Program alumni can apply for twelve months residency in one of CERI’s seven startup offices and are also eligible to apply for mentorship through the CERI Venture Mentor Program.
The generous support we receive from the Malka Foundation allows us to provide highly targeted assistance to CERI startups. Our Customer Development Masterclass encourages startups to validate and address new customer markets, while our Startup Support Packages address the early-stage funding deficit that many startups experience.
