How The Program Works
- We start by introducing you to key concepts in entrepreneurship, marketing and finance that you'll want to know to give you a comfort level when speaking to investors and others.
- Next, we help you determine product-market fit using a proven methodology and a framework of accountability.
- If you have that fit, you move on to writing your business plan and developing your pitch - facilitated by a successful serial entrepreneur and with the advice and mentoring of an experienced entrepreneur, investor or C-level professional.
- Finally, we begin holding you accountable to what you said you would do as you participate in your first CEO peer group.
- You launch your very own business!
