About the Course

How do you come up with the best startup idea for you? Where do you look for ideas? How do you know if a startup idea is right for you? Do you have what it takes to pull off your startup idea? Where do you start — do you rely on your passion, or look for emerging technologies or just have an inventory of your skillsets? How many times, have been you a part of a brainstorm session to think of a business idea?

And yet, what has been the result of all those efforts?

Getting a good startup idea is not easy.

Why is it tough?

For people who aren’t into an entrepreneurial mindset, the toughest part about making the transition to the founder is coming up with a profitable business idea.

Some of the reasons for this are:

  • You confuse a ‘plan’ a.k.a. “how” with a ‘product’ a.k.a. “ what”.
  • You wait, read, network, and learn until you get a good idea.
  • You search for business ideas on the internet. 
  • You get bogged down with domain knowledge constraints
  • You believe in that “apple on Newton’s head” moment
  • Not confident if ideas that you are thinking are good and more particularly for you
  • Not confident if you can do it.
  • You romanticise with sexy business models of new successful startups a.k.a. Uber and Airbnb.

Business ideas don’t come from the back of napkins in coffee shops.

The course will help you learn to find awesome business ideas that have greater chances of success, so you can get on to launch the startup project.

Instructor

Presently, I am involved in entrepreneurship training, mentoring and startup consulting.

My prior work involved a stint in an early venture fund and launching and building two businesses.

My current focus area is - early stage starups, early traction, lean business model, value proposition, investors deck, business plan, product-market fit, minimum viable product (MVP), strategy, growth, lean business model validation process and more.

My core strength is about experimenting.

Many individuals and teams struggle to move from ideas to projects (or startups), at the right time. Sometimes ideas remain ideas for way too long. At other times they become projects (or startups) prematurely, without validation. Running experiments is the missing step. It’s a distinct unit or phase of work.

Running the right experiments is hard and this is where I bring in value.
