What you'll learn in this startup strategy class:

You’ll learn about free resources, products, and services which will save you money as well as how much you’ll need for essential living expenses. Having a roadmap of your expenses ahead will enable you to build and grow your company or organization without a fatal surprise that ends in “game over.”

Most startup founders spend a significant amount of their own money to finance their venture’s first-year operating costs. Startup funds end up being sourced from savings accounts, high-interest credit cards, or IOUs. In this class, you’ll create a budget for both your company’s operational needs as well as your personal living expenses. 

Takeaways:
  • Develop a clear roadmap outlining the major steps needed to launch a business and the costs associated.
  • Create a draft budget for essential expenditures.
  • Understand a methodology for figuring out when you can leave your job to work full-time on your venture.
  • Review a list of startup fundraising ideas to minimize using personal funds
Prerequisites & Preparation:

Bring a laptop with Excel or access to Google Docs, a calculator, and download Seth Godin’s The Bootstrapper’s Bible.



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.
