A Step-By-Step Course to help you with your Startup

Check out the course Startup Idea to Profit in 180 Days

The Grey Cells

This course is a knowledge base of that core experience I have gained in my journey. After having spent more than 20 years as an Employee, Entrepreneur and Consultant in the Digital Startup industry I saw the journey and the challenges faced during it.  Be it product design, marketing, selling, funding each aspect of the journey needed to be taken up carefully – planned and executed with patience rather than rushing into it blindfolded. I have expressed all these concepts on the basis of an example so that the understanding is not just theoretical in nature. You will be able to learn the following  :

  • Defining / Documenting your Vision
  • Team Vision
  • Arranging Funds
  • Crafting Your Product/Service system
  • Marketing Your Product/Service
  • Selling Your Product/Service
  • Customer Service

The workshops will ensure that by the end of the course, you create the artefacts for their own business idea. You will have everything ready which will boost your confidence in your business idea in a defined and structured way

As a bonus, I will spend 30 mins with you to discuss the artefacts you have created so that we can clarify your doubts and tweak the artefacts if needed.
