Week 1 — Mindset of the Enterpreneur
We kick off the Bootcamp with a look at what drives entrepreneurs. Is it the autonomy? The challenge? A big idea that won’t let you sleep? All of the above?!
To paraphrase Zig Ziglar, “It’s your attitude AND your aptitude that determine your altitude.”
See you at the top!
Week 2 — Launching Your MVP
“Minimum Viable Product.” Way more valuable than any player.
In Week 2, we’ll dive deep into preparing your product(s)—and/or services/solutions—for the marketplace. Hint: it’s not exactly “Ready, Fire, Aim” but speed is of the essence.
Week 3 — Business Models & Growth Strategies
How will you do what you do? Concepts like Freemium and Enterprise Sales and SaaS must be understood as you identify your value proposition, target customers, distribution channels, revenue streams, and key metrics to measure it all.
Week 4 — Team & Culture
Here’s when we examine what it takes to build and lead an exceptional business organization. Vision. Purpose. Culture. Humility. Commitment.
Discover the principles of legendary teams and their leaders, from athletic fields to boardrooms and home offices.
Week 5 — Finance & Stakeholders
Fulfillment goes way beyond money—but a business without financial health and sustainable economics simply won’t last long.
From capital structure, to partners and investors, to accounting systems, to legal agreements and oversight, we’ll help you grasp the fundamentals that too many entrepreneurs underestimate.
Week 6 — Pitching Your Startup
Your business has life! You’ve got products and customers, processes and revenues, a team and a vision.
Time to level up with greater resources to enable you to grow and achieve your full potential. Can you tell the story and persuade people to get on board?
As you may have heard, there are sharks out there ; )
Week 6 will get you ready. Then Week 7 will let you prove it!
Week 7 — Demo Week!
Your turn to take center stage! Showcase all you’ve learned and pitch your startup to investors from around the GSV network. You’ll get invaluable experience, feedback, and a real opportunity to attract capital to help grow your business.
Plus, all Bootcampers who participate in Demo Week will have a chance to be featured on the show Meet The Drapers!
