Your idea will solve a specific problem. Understand this problem as deeply as possible, and conduct problem focused interviews with your customers and users.
Prototype your solution with the needs of your customers and users in mind. Show them, don’t tell. Conduct solution focused interviews with your customers and users to develop your minimum viable product.
Understand the industry you will be in, estimate your market, and differentiate your business idea from competitors already out there. Verify your positioning by USP focused interviews with your customers and users.
Develop your financial model based on the learnings from your interviews and educated assumptions. Wrap it all up in a business plan read deck.
Prepare a really good final presentation and receive input from a professional presentation trainer as well as hands-on support by your personal coach.
Success of Startup Connect
„We’re building a platform for visual backend development, and during BPG we were able to turn our idea into a business, and to identify both the short-term and long-term revenue model. Through presentations, we were able to communicate the technical aspects to everyone effectively. We came out of the course with a pitch deck, a cofounder, 2 awesome mentors, and a business. Currently, we are in a pre-seed fundraising round, and became part of the Wayra community.“
