INDEMNITY
The Site provides business services based on our experience and related research deployed through our Academy Programs based on Lean Methodologies. Whilst the field is developing its own management science surrounding the cheap availability of technologies, as with any new, fledging or small business, it carries risks. Lean Methods openly state 9 out of 10 of startups for instance typically fail. The approach of the Site is to help companies minimise their own risk, however we accept (as has been our own experience) that there are many circumstances that are inherent such as environmental factors, competition, absence of liquidity, ownership of IP, conflicts of interest, past and future performance of products and personnel. As part of the terms of services and doing business with the SITE, all clients (Program, Coaching and Consulting, etc) agrees not to indemnify Site directors, mentors, speakers, coaches and business associates against liability when acting for the group. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes any assurances surrounding success or failure, with the emphasis that each startup or small business does by virtue undertake a high degree of risk.

REPUTATION
All Site Programs are performance based and leverage web-based project management systems to track progress as well as collaboration metrics of participants. In this respect we regard all Programs as ‘centres of excellence’ and so much adhere to these General Terms, including Ethics for the duration agreed by the Program Licence Agreement. By using developed methods and metrics to benchmark participants as our IP, we are able to confidently provide successful Program ‘graduates’ the Site’s seal-of-approval. Therefore, ultimately we are basing our business upon a high degree of repute which may ultimately culminate in a successful “investment event”. This also allows successful ‘graduates’ to promote and advertise themselves through professional social platforms such as

DISCLAIMER
Likewise neither does an “investment event” guarantee success, in fact an investor may, and frequently does lose all of its investment. The Site may also collaborate through discounts which may act as an initial “investment” such as, consulting services, access to collaboration and IP/knowledge-sharing platforms in order to alleviate costs that may be inhibitive for a startup or fledgling business grow. For the avoidance of doubt, the Site is not licensed to provide legal, tax or financial advice under Australian Law. Any advice provided, including on this website is general advice only.
