About Cour Collaborative

At Cour Collaborative, we provide affordable business strategies, project management, and guided DIY marketing help to small businesses with a limited budget. We aim to bridge the gap for startups and micro-businesses that need growth guidance but can’t afford an agency.

 

More than 600k businesses are launched each year in the US with 64% of those starting with less than $10k. However, most consultancies serve mid-sized to large businesses with high fees and services structured to keep their clients dependent on them. And most nonprofit advisories offer generic advice and fill-in-the-blank templates.

 

We specialize in strengthening small organizations without the high price tag or the one-size-fits-all approach.

We help build small businesses up with a hands-on approach toward realistic goals and aim to empower entrepreneurs to take command of every aspect of their business.

 

We’re not a marketing or loan agency and we don’t accept referral fees from any organization ever. This means we aren’t motivated to recommend anything that just isn’t necessary.

 

We provide free marketing advice and have an in-house, community-supported grant program. Through our Kid Kollaborative initiative, we offer completely free services to kid-owned businesses across Texas.
