Objectives

A common mistake when a startup founder is looking to raise money for their own project is the approach to investors. Typically the founder concentrates on the tech aspects rather than the market or business ones, whereas the latter are the most important aspects for those who wish to invest in a digital, and scalable, business. The aim of the course is to provide students with theoretical and applied knowledge on approaching investors and it focuses on:

  • Leaning Startup Approach;
  • Market Analysis;
  • Budgeting;
  • Go-to-Market Strategy;
  • Startup Presentation.

Professionals interested in the startup ecosystem and those who wish, as an entrepreneur, to establish a startup. Soft skills are highly recommended.
