Startup Crash Course: From Idea to Business (Lecture 1: Idea Validation)
March 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
About the Event:
On the Startup Crash Course, you will learn crucial insights on how to come up with and validate a startup idea, take it from zero to operational business and how to win investment with pitching. The course consists of three workshop-lectures: Idea Validation – Feb 27, Growing Smart – Mar 6, Perfect Pitching – Mar 13.
99% of startups fail and the main reason is a bunch of myths around the startup scene. Those myths give you wrong expectations and crippled instruments. The main goal of this course is to give you practical tips and insights about the most critical parts of any startup: idea validation, growth, and fundraising. And all this information will be presented within the Armenian reality – small local market, lack of financial resources, developing startup ecosystem.
To know where to start when launching a business; to know which steps to undertake in order to launch a business; to be able to form a high quality business model; to be able to pitch to various stakeholders.
This course is for anyone who:
- has a startup idea and wants to learn how to validate it
- has a startup idea and doesn’t know how to start;
- doesn’t have a startup idea but wants to learn how to come up with good one
- wants to learn how to take off a startup fast and efficiently
- wants to become an entrepreneur, but is still guessing whether it is the right way to go
