Those who sign up for the newly launched digital academy will get the opportunity to learn how to open and run a physical or online business and will also be given all the resources they need to do so. The resources will help them source products and a location, talk to vendors, and finally open their store.
The course comprises three modules, each focusing on a different aspect of starting up a business. The first is titled Your Dream Store & Why It Matters, the second, Time to Build the Brand, and the third, Yes, You Do Need a Business Plan.
As the name suggests, in the first module students will be enlightened on having a clear vision of the store they want to build, the role they want to play in building it, and the reason for building. This portion of the course will allow aspiring entrepreneurs to properly plan the details of their business, visualize its future, and have a clear idea of the goal of their business.
The second module aims to help students develop a clearly defined brand that includes the business name and style. Added to this, students will be taught how to secure all social media and domain names as well as how to set up a business email.
After having completed the other two modules, the aspiring entrepreneurs will then be equipped to develop a business plan. Here, students will delve into their business mission and vision, conduct market research, and focus on financial forecasting.
The course comes with two payment options: participants can choose to pay the full payment upfront or the 12 months payment plan.
Scoop Marketplace lists seven ways for individuals to know if they are ready to start a zero-waste business. Some of these include the fact that one has been dreaming of opening such a store but doesn’t know where to begin, one has already begun a zero-waste business plan but with difficulty, and one has already invested several hours a week planning to open the store.
The mission of Scoop Marketplace is to normalize zero-waste grocery shopping. The company prides itself on teaching people how to improve the quality of their lives while learning to walk more gently on the planet.
