What you'll learn in this startup strategy class:

Great startups often come from founders who had their idea while working a separate job. In this class, you’ll develop a clear, 30-day roadmap to evaluate your potential startup idea without quitting your job. Along the way, you’ll learn how to drastically mitigate the risks involved in pursuing your idea and put yourself in the best possible position to succeed.

  • Identify a few core hypotheses, then create an MVP that cheaply and quickly validates or disproves these hypotheses.
  • Learn how to evaluate product/market fit and create personas to represent core customer segments.
  • Define goal-oriented milestones that include solving a specific problem, acquiring customers, testing hypotheses, defining success, and eventually building a team and understanding funding needs.
  • Make an informed go / no go decision on your startup idea.
Prereqs & Preparation
  • One, or a few, startup ideas would be helpful but are not necessary.
  • Please bring a laptop to class.
School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.

Brian was a great instructor! His 30 Days from Idea to Decision class was insightful, informative, and light-hearted. He had a lot of inside knowledge and provided plenty of examples to help wrap, especially for a newbie like me, your head around the structure of how to optimally begin a startup the smart way. I believe anyone can find a nugget of useful information in his class.
