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?

Demo
week

Showcase all you’ve learned and pitch your startup to investors from around the GSV network. You’ll get invaluable experience, feedback, and a real opportunity to attract capital to help grow your business.
