Every entrepreneur has a startup idea they’d like to get off the ground. Gone are the days where you have to spend millions of dollars to find out if your business idea will succeed or fail. Whether you're looking to launch a tech startup or open a new restaurant, enroll in this class if you'd like to learn how to quickly validate your ideas.
In this class, I'll share the secrets behind the early success of Skillshare, which I briefly documented in this article. We spent less than $5,000 to launch Skillshare and ended up raising over $3.6M. A lot of the early success with Skillshare is directly correlated with talking to users, iterating, and moving fast.
At the end of the class, you’ll leave this class with a finalized Minimum Viable Product and the skills to define a great MVP for any future venture. You’ll be able to do the following by completing your project:
Clearly communicate your startup idea in one sentence Identify the holes in your startup idea and the top 2-3 solutions to plug them Create an action plan with your first five (5) action steps towards validating your startup idea for less than $1,000 Choose one key metric you’ll use to measure success
I've taught this class in-person to hundreds of students. Some of my past students have been featured on Mashable, The Next Web, and have started successfully companies. Hope to have many more students that are successful!
