    Programme curriculum

    Mindset of the entrepreneur

    We kick off the bootcamp with a look at what drives entrepreneurs. Is it the autonomy? The challenge? A big idea that won’t let you sleep? All of the above?

    Launching
    your MVP

    We’ll dive deep into preparing your product(s)—and/or services/solutions—for the marketplace.

    Business models & growth strategies

    How will you do what you do? Understand concepts like Freemium and Enterprise Sales and SaaS as you identify your value proposition, target customers, distribution channels, revenue streams, and key metrics to measure it all.

    Team &
    culture

    Here’s when we examine what it takes to build and lead an exceptional business organisation. Discover the principles of legendary teams and their leaders, from athletic fields to boardrooms and home offices.

    Finance &
    stakeholders

    From capital structure, to partners and investors, to accounting systems, to legal agreements and oversight, we’ll help you grasp the fundamentals that too many entrepreneurs underestimate.

    Pitching
    your startup

    You’ve got products and customers, processes and revenues, a team and a vision. Time to level up with greater resources to enable you to grow and achieve your full potential. Can you tell the story and persuade people to get on board?
