Project Description

ACTION: Tell us about your startup!

You joined this class because you're curious about starting a startup. Now, use this class as a resource for moving your idea forward!

In the Project Gallery, share your thinking, including:

  • How you came up with your idea
  • Whether or not you'll work with co-founders
  • How you'll design & test your MVP
  • Why you're excited to be an entrepreneur

Feel free to use words, images, video—whatever best represents your thinking.

If you're further along, consider sharing your elevator pitch, landing page, or other media communicating your idea. Watch Albert's Skillshare class Funding Your Business: Demystifying Venture Capital for more tactical advice on pitching investors and telling your story.

Remember to ask specific, directed questions in your project post. This will help the community share constructive, useful feedback. And, be sure to provide feedback on other projects so we can all share knowledge.

Looking forward to seeing your projects!
