CERI's immense support, mentoring, connections with peers and investors, office space, and funding helped us upskill and streamline our business development. Thanks to CERI's expertise and guidance, I feel more equipped to handle business development projects.

Svetlana Baltic Managing Director

CERI gave me the tools and frameworks required to navigate the entrepreneurial pathway. With the support and encouragement of staff, mentors, and guest speakers I was able to clearly define my business and maximise the probability of success.

Philip Gehrmann Managing Director

Taking part in the CERI programs was a perfect way for me to reflect on my “why” and start my entrepreneurial journey. It established the foundations of my long term vision and gave me a head start in developing my entrepreneurial toolkit and seeing the bigger picture.

Nikhilesh Bappoo Director & CTO

CERI is a great place to meet people and get the tools required to work on your business. The best thing is that you learn the essentials of business development, accounting, IP, funding and more so you can then rely on best practices rather than intuition alone.

Timur Golovinov Founder

CERI has provided us with a solid foundation for what are the key challenges as a start-up and how to overcome them. The team has introduced us to a collaborative community of like-minded entrepreneurs, a valuable network to be part of.

Joshua Wigley Founder

CERI has given me the opportunity to meet people with different backgrounds and fields of expertise. Each of them have helped me tremendously on my start-up journey. The skills and knowledge from the CERI programs have been invaluable to me and the development of my project.

Renee Tan Co-Founder

CERI's programs gave me the confidence to go further than just thinking about a possible venture then finding reasons to think it won't work before even trying. They adjusted my mindset, provided me with the tools and knowledge to develop an idea and are now continually encouraging further progress.

Geoffrey Chambon Co-Founder

Delivered by educators, facilitators and mentors who have forged their way to great achievement and continue to succeed so that businesses may emerge with less risk, higher potential for attainment of global impact and our Western Australia economy diversifies.

Steve Stirling Founder

I found the team at CERI to be incredibly professional and genuinely passionate about helping people harness their entrepreneurial mindset. The ongoing guidance and support they provide is priceless and I couldn't be happier with my decision to take part in the courses.

Matt Shales | CEO

CERI is a start-up's dream come true, its leadership understands us, and delivers a well-structured education, support, and mentoring program with top facilities. We are privileged, lucky and grateful to be a resident company at CERI.

Fred Meyer Director

The CERI courses and mentorship were invaluable in helping us to develop a coherent, customer focus to our R&D efforts, and the ongoing community interaction has opened doors we never knew existed.

Mike Le Page | CEO

CERI has provided me with access to mentorship, education, and a great centrally located office, which was pivotal in turning my business idea into reality. At CERI small businesses and start-ups have access to free tools and professional support that most start-ups dream of having (or trade an arm and a leg for).
