SERVICES I OFFER

CONSULTING HW LINE ART_edited.png

CONSULTING

Highwire's consulting work focus is on creating/delivering inclusive, intersectional feminist, and post-growth economy-informed entrepreneurship education, and programming. We create turnkey programs. We offer existing program audits and work with you to integrate post-growth concepts and frameworks. We also provide board advisory services and design jam-based strategic plan facilitation for startup education institutions.

We have experience! 

 

Through HighWire Collective, we helped create the first women-centric startup incubator in Amman, Jordan, and helped design the Yukon's Northlight Innovation program. We have helped create, implement and advise on the development of many women's entrepreneurship programs. 

We are currently (2023) working with OCAD U to create a post-growth values-informed sales accelerator for digital art entrepreneurs.

 

If you want to support entrepreneurs and small business owners interested in post growth ideas and enterprise design, call us.
