ABOUT THIS CLASS
Got a business idea and wondering how you can turn it into a successful start-up? In this class you’ll learn how to move forward at each stage, from the first spark of an idea through to product development, funding, and customer acquisition.
The class is aimed at both aspiring entrepreneurs and startup teams. It should be useful if you’re still working out how to turn your idea into reality, or if you're already working on something and looking for guidance to take you over the next hurdle.
The first three milestones you’ll need to present your idea: The pitch, the mock-up and the first draft of your business model
The concepts you need to make your idea a success: the minimum-viable-product, first customers, and the path towards a viable business model.
Discover how to tell when you’re ready for proper funding, and where you can find it.
Practical tips for London-based entrepeneurs, including hiring developers, where you should be based, and the best places to network and get feedback.
