Learn how to build a business case
This will be a San Francisco-style incubator that covers current thinking in entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, including MVPs, Lean Startups, Design Thinking and crafting and delivering the 10-Slide Pitch Deck. Students will learn how to innovate and test their ideas each morning, then spend the afternoons and evenings working in teams on their own startup project. The course culminates in a pitch day, when each team pitches their concept to a panel of investors who have the opportunity to provide seed funding for startups they see potential in.
What should participants expect?
This will be a fast-paced and immersive experience. We’ll touch on the major processes and approaches that startups use to achieve success in Silicon Valley. Come with your own entrepreneurial ideas, or join a group with an idea you love.
What will participants come away with at the end?
You will walk away with a founding team, a business plan and an MVP that you can develop into a real startup – you might walk away with seed money and an advisory board.
