*If you’re not sure if Springboard is right for you please come to the first meeting, just let us know you’re coming by sending us an email! Note that the early bird discount will not be available to those registering after 8/31/14, and partial scholarship applications are due 8/26/14.

Cost: The cost for the entire workshop is $795. That´s 10 group meetings (totaling 26 hours) PLUS 2 hours of private coaching to keep you on track. We offer several different ways to reduce this cost, however. Note that, per the usual fine print, these offers can not be combined.

  • Partial Scholarship – $395:   We offer one partial scholarship. If you are interested in applying for this please send us an email and tell us 1) about your project 2) why you think you’re the person who should get the scholarship. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, August 26 and we will only be offering this to one person in the San Francisco group.
  • Crowdfunding – $0: Springboard has its own built-in Crowdfunding program! Ask your friends and family to support you in enrolling and bringing your creative project to fruition.
  • Early Registration – $695: Save $100 when you register and pay in full by 8/31/14.
  • 4 Person Registration – $2085:  Pay for four people at once and get 25% off per person!
  • Payment Plan – $295:  If you can’t come up with all the money at once simply make a deposit of $295 before the course begins. $275 will be due on 10/7/14 and $275 will be due on 11/4/14. Note that there is a $50 fee built in to this method.
  • Add-On Private Coaching: Sometimes you want some extra help during the 3 month long program. That’s where private coaching comes in. Our base price includes 2 hours of private coaching but many people find having more one on one time to be helpful. Normally private coaching through Springboard is $100/hr, but if you pay for it at the time of registration you get it for 25% off at $75/hr. This coaching is done by the group’s facilitator who really knows you and your project. It’s a great way to turbo-charge your creativity.
