About the course

It is a carefully designed & structured 13-week rigorous program offered through the colleges, at the end of which the outcome for students is to progress from a business model, MVP and a Practice Venture (PV) to a Potential Real Venture (PRV). PRV is a planned experiment to experience for real, the entrepreneurship concepts taught in closed walls of a classroom. It builds efficacy for venture creation and makes the entrepreneurial journey easy and fun-filled with its structured approach.

Here is what we mean by a Validated Idea:

  • You have identified a ‘customer type’ that you are dealing with.
  • You have identified a problem that is critical for the that customer type
  • You have validated this problem with a ‘sizable’ set of customers so you know that it is a ‘real problem’
  • Your research and customer discussions shows that There is a large enough number of customers that are looking for a solution to this particular problem, and the venture can be financially viable and feasible
  • There are no apparent existing solutions or good enough solutions that are serving your customer type at this time for the problem
  • May have started working on a website/facebook/Instagram page to get customer reactions
  • May have worked on a prototype solution already
  • May have early traction with some customers
