Welcome to Module 3! This module is Evidence-based Pitch Narratives. Design is an interactive process requiring creation, critique, and revision. Since the core of innovation is design, it makes sense that the approach to technology entrepreneurship and innovative solutions is iterative. After all, it makes it possible to design your venture concept quickly for discussion and advance. An entrepreneur needs to be able to iteratively design a new venture concept for critique and advancement. In this module, you will sketch your plans for a new venture in support of your marketplace conversations and pitch deck.

Welcome to Module 4! This module is Solution Hypotheses. In innovation, we set hypotheses and work with them. At the heart of it, innovation requires an entrepreneur to be able to predict a solution. They do this based on marketplace evidence. The story of your work as an entrepreneur is told in your pitch deck, which is aligned with the work you did as you designed and refined your technology solution, conducted marketplace conversations, and then refined your solutions and pitch deck. An entrepreneur needs to be able to predict a viable technology solution based on marketplace evidence to date. In this module, you will refine your solution and pitch deck.
