Hello I am Michael Allen Founder of Bouncepreneurs and Author of Bouncepreneurs How to Bounce Back from Business Failure

Many of you reading this will have lost a business. You worked really hard and it still failed. Some of you may have memories of Mum or Dad's business failing and having miserable lean times, breakdown of your family and repossession of your car, property and assets. But most of all you will remember the shame. It will scar you for life!

If this has happened to you (it has happened to me) - you will understand the Bouncepreneur's mission.

We are asking for your help so that Bouncepreneurs can do more to assist "failed" entrepreneurs out of the "burning house" of business failure faster than they can do it on their own. 

The truth is society - especially those who have never taken entrepreneurial risk just don't understand. They can be well meaning and it is changing for the better. But our establishment loves to pop champagne and jump into photos of startups - but when you fail in business it is a very lonely place indeed!

93% of all entrepreneurs fail within 10 years! 53% within their first year according to recent Vistaprint research in Europe. 

It typically takes a person 2-4 years to recover from the grief of losing a business. Their families, relationships, self-esteem and power to create wealth and jobs all suffer.

At Bouncepreneurs we asked the following question

Why do millions of people around the world who have worked really hard, behaved ethically and really done their best deserve long term shame, barriers to finding a job (due to punitive credit rating) and real poverty  FOR YEARS?

There has to be a better way!!!!


There is - Bouncepreneurs helping entrepreneurs Bounce Back from Failure faster and Smarter.

We work with ethical entrepreneurs (in several countries) and their families after their businesses have failed to bring them back to entrepreneurial success and personal happiness. 

Our work is based around training and Bounce Back recovery programmes. We currently offer a 90 day and a 365 day programme. 

But many Bouncepreneurs cannot pay for our programmes, no matter how low we try to price them. So we wish to offer low cost or even FREE service to entrepreneurs that they can use at the point of crisis.

You can help us deliver this free service and allow talented people, who create ideas, make innovation happen, export, employ and cement communities get back into productive life.

  • Maybe you have Bounced Back Yourself?
  • Or Perhaps your organisation's founder Bounced Back - Henry Ford, Oprah Winfrey, Coco Channel, George Foreman, even Abraham Lincoln were all Bouncepreneurs?
  • Or simply you are one of a growing number of organisations who see that helping ethical entrepreneurs recover is part of their corporate social responsibility
  • Finally you may be a government organisation, who are seeing second phase entrepreneurship (Bounce Backs) are vital to your overall economic development strategy
So I am looking for support to help me and my team deliver Bounce Back resources including

A second book called "The Entrepreneur Strikes Back" (yes Star Wars fans like the Empire Strikes Back), which I can offer for free to Bouncepreneurs.

Marketing of the Bouncepreneurs movement so desperate people can find their way to us for help

Further Development of the Bouncepreneurs 90 and 365 Bounce Back Courses especially international translation.
