The goal of start-up accelerator is to help you build your own start-up. As such, the focus will be on real world, hands-on learning regarding what it’s like to actually start a company. It is a simulation of what start-ups and entrepreneurship are like in the real world: chaos, uncertainty, impossible deadlines in insufficient time, conflicting input, etc. In line with the lean startup approach, you will get to test all of the assumptions underlying your business model. You will be designing experiments and tests to figure out whether your envisioned customers really are your customers, whether the problem you think you’re solving is really what you should be solving, whether the way you think you should be targeting customers is truly the most efficient and effective way of acquiring your customers, just to name a few. In other words, you’ll be getting your hands dirty talking to customers, partners, and competitors as you will encounter the chaos and uncertainty of how a start-up actually works. Moreover, to deepen your knowledge on crucial elements of how to build a startup, we will also provide practice-oriented workshops including several testimonials. To get the most out of this experience, you will be assigned a mentor (an experienced entrepreneur or investor) to assist you along the way with their advice and contacts where relevant.
