The SBE Explore program covers:
The fundamentals of taking an idea and turning it into a business, and the correct steps needed to do just that. Skills learnt cover establishing whether customers want your solution, how to work to a lean startup model, different types of business models, how to properly commercialise your idea, forecasting, budgeting, working out customer acquisition and lifetime customer values, marketing, what investors are looking for and how to develop an elevator pitch. The program provides access to leading experts and mentors from various fields each week that work directly with you on your idea, including individualised coaching sessions.
The program is an 8 week hybrid program. Weeks 1 and 8 will be conducted as face-to face-sessions. Weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 will be held virtually with 1.5 contact hours required each week.
The cohort size is minimal as to allow for a direct, engaging learning environment.
