AXNS Collective with London South Bank University
Researcher(s): Dr Stephen Barber
AXNS Collective is a start-up by recent graduates who have little formal business education and as such require guidance investigating potential business models with the objective of ensuring the survival of the organisation and further educate its members. The organisation would like to consider the sector to inform and develop a new business strategy, and also generate practical ways to monetize existing activities.
From the engagement of an experienced academic, a project plan was generated to focus precise activities and objectives over the medium term, together with applying for sources of funding. While the small size of AXNS did not require this to be overly formal, the agreement to written and planned out objectives, responsibilities and income streams means that the enterprise is more professionally organised.
