While our programs are crafted with great intentionality, we know some contexts call for slight adaptations. For this reason, we’ve built in a simple way to customize our Core program through optional, standalone three-hour Special Sessions. These optional sessions provide multiple recommended paths for sequence and schedule, allowing you to choose a program to best address your community’s needs. While we have several plug-in sessions available, you can also create your own.

Our Special Session content is delivered digitally through the CO.STARTERS Community Platform. If you are interested in getting a copy of the Special Session content or adding it to your cohort, talk with your local Program Administrator.

Show & Tell

3 hours | Use between Sessions 3 & 4

After discussing how starting small can help get the feedback needed, practice with the group. Each person will demo their product or service and get an initial round of feedback to improve their offerings. 

“Pitch” Practice

3 hours | Use after Session 9 & before Celebration

Standing up in front of a group and sharing your story can be intimidating. During this special session, participants have the opportunity to get additional tips, tools, support, and coaching as they practice sharing their stories with others.

30/60/90 Roadmap

3 hours | Use after Session 9 & before Celebration

Continuing the momentum of CO.STARTERS Core post-cohort can be daunting. During this special session, participants will set 30, 60, and 90-day milestones and use planning best practices to define weekly tasks to help accomplish their goals.
