what will you learn

Throughout six sessions, participants will develop and validate a business idea, gain a deeper understanding of their target customers, explore the different financing options for startups, and implement the most appropriate model for their business.

The program will end with an in-depth review of the principal funding sources available for any startup to finance its product/service.

SESSION 1: LET’S START!

Reality as we know it can be transformed with business models that are born, grow and become tangible with the clear purpose of improving the world. We are committed to finding solutions to achieve prosperity and social mobility.

Discover what it means to be a Game Changer by putting into practice their skills, knowledge and experience to solve the challenges, through the creation of a business idea.

SESSION 2: ONE PLUS ONE EQUAL THREE

Discover the Problem!

Many have either heard or said the phrase, “Teamwork makes the Dream Work.” That is because teamwork maximizes individual strengths by leveraging the strengths of  multiple team members. The team is then able to utilize everyone’s strengths without being held back by areas of improvement.

Ideas often grow exponentially, when participants are encouraged to think quickly and without fear of judgment. Rapid ideation uses the power of groups to create a volume of new ideas/solutions that are evaluated shortly thereafter.

In this session Entrepreneurs-In-The-Making will discover the power behind a team, but above all, the power behind an idea that will change an entire reality.

SESSION 3: A CAN OF WORMS!

Who Has the Problem?

The expression “opening a can of worms” means trying to solve a problem and to solve a problem we need to know the root cause and what the pain is.

In this session, participants will learn to better understand who their customers are through a deeper exploration of their environment, their unique view of the world, and their own needs. We will get into the customer’s mind and find out what they think and feel at the moment of making a purchase decision.

SESSION 4: PROBLEM SOLVERS

Create a Solution!

Will your business idea change the future or will the future change your business idea?

A well-formulated problem is half the solution, so one of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs is turning their ideas into workable plans. Anyone might think they have a solid idea, but taking thoughts from paper to action can be much more challenging. In this session Entrepreneurs-In-The-Making will learn how to turn a business idea into a business model.

SESSION 5: WILL IT WORK?

Develop the Solution!

Once you have early validation that your idea may have viability, how do you define your target market and target audiences? How do you decide which features your product/service should have? How do you prioritize the features of your product/service?

This session will help Entrepreneurs-In-The-Making research and define their target audience and create a basic user persona. You will be introduced to techniques to turn your customers’ observations into product/service features and how to prioritize the features for development.

SESSION 6: SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Finance the Solution!

No matter how good a business idea may be, an essential element of a successful startup is the ability to obtain sufficient funds to start and grow the business. While many people finance their startups with their own capital or by borrowing money from family or friends, there are other options available. But startup founders should understand that getting money for a startup is never easy and often takes longer than anticipated.

In this session, we will review the main sources of funding available for any startup.
