Is this a course?
It is a combination of knowledge and execution. Unlike the traditional course format that often consists of lectures and Q&As, this initiative begins by providing entrepreneurs with the required knowledge not only for learning purposes but also to use the acquired knowledge to turn an idea or interest in entrepreneurship into a tested solution.
Entrepreneurs are first exposed to the different important areas about startup development. Content is most importantly organized to enable entrepreneurs to connect the dots while executing on their ideas through guidance and product development.
Besides the lectures, a private Trello page is used to document and track the progress of entrepreneurs as they move forward to validating their ideas. A Slack group is used for networking, seeking feedback and connecting with likeminded entrepreneurs. And finally, after over 8 years of working with numerous freelancers, we have recruited the best programmers, designers and project managers including Upwork’s best team in the last 3 consecutive years, to assist entrepreneurs with product (app) development when needed.
The program is organized as follows:
1) Introduction: Slack chat and by answering a few introductory questions.
2) Trello page is created and entrepreneur is invited. In it, entrepreneurs can ask specific questions.
3) Execution ideally starts after the first 5 lectures since most of the methods, approaches, tools and techniques for going to market are presented in those 5 lectures.
4) Trello page updated with initial idea to market execution steps.
5) Entrepreneurs continue with the lectures as they make tangible progress.
6) After completing all lectures which ideally take 2-3 weeks, entrepreneurs focus on using the knowledge to validate the need for their ideas and build startup value.
7) Team members can be invited at any time by contacting the team supervisor. Selected members are added to Trello and tasks are assigned to them.
We can spend our lives studying but if we don’t use the acquired knowledge to build value, it’s like we didn’t learn anything in the first place. This initiative combines knowledge with execution.
How is this going to contribute to me as an entrepreneur?
It will provide you with all the needed resources to turn an idea into a viable startup solution. Ironically, in the early stages of seeking a foundation in a new field, the more we read and listen, the more confused we get. It takes time to connect the dots.
First, in designing the content of the startup knowledge side of the initiative, we made sure that the acquired information is not only sequential but also relates to other interpretations, methods and approaches you hear and read from other experts and books. Second, we made sure that content is designed for execution, that is, the tools, methods, frameworks and approaches we share are actionable.
Keep in mind that if today, you’re only looking to be equipped with knowledge and a road map for execution, you are free to execute later in the future.
Who is this for?
First time entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and seasonal entrepreneurs who need support making a bigger difference with their ideas. Although this initiative addresses startup founders, it is of great value to existing or aspiring small business owners. More specifically, this is for you if:
You are planning to start a business (startup or small business)
You are looking for business opportunities
You are in the processing of starting
You are looking for a team
You are looking for business skills
Your first idea didn’t go as you hoped and you need to make some changes
You’re a teacher and looking to incorporate startup development in your lectures
Why is it valuable again?
Entrepreneurs will not only learn how to turn ideas into products people are willing to pay for but also supported every step of the way to make this happen. Entrepreneurs will learn how to minimize risk, bootstrap (self-fund) their business and generate money from pre-orders while increasing the value of their business to qualify and increase chances of getting funded quickly if needed. This, can only be accomplished by combining knowledge with execution. A team with complementary skills is available and likeminded entrepreneurs are there to help when needed.
What’s the alternative? perhaps majoring in entrepreneurship, reading books, articles, taking courses, etc. all of those are valuable as well. It takes time to connect the dots and time is money so through this initiative, what entrepreneurs accomplish in 2 months, others do in over a year (I speak from experience).
Is the enrollment forever?
All content (presentations, articles and guides) are accessible at any time, all the time. The Slack chat community will also always be available for networking (as new entrepreneurs join every month), pitching and seeking feedback. Trello’s one on one guidance remains open and active for 90 days after which all questions can be answered directly from Slack. Finally, you can continue to recruit from our selected team (freelancers) with complementary skills at any time.
What’s the investment?
The investment is $285. Request an invitation and you will receive the instruction for completing enrollment.
