Save on time, money and stress when you don't know where to start.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
About This Course
So you have a great idea for a startup. Problem is, great ideas are a dime a dozen. What matters is proper execution of your idea. Most startups fail because they build the wrong thing and can’t get customers.
Launching a startup is a strenuous endeavour – there is no doubt about it. In this intensive, hands on, practical bootcamp you will learn how to think about your startup the right way. We take the case study approach to go from idea phase to validating a business model to creating a prototype; all within one weekend. This course will save you time and money, and will kick start your idea so you leave the course with a clear path, and possibly even some early stage customers under your belt.
If you have a great startup idea, DON’T let it go to waste!
