Welcome to the course specialization project. Congratulations on making it here! We are so excited you are taking this next step in pursuit of your startup idea. This course is not content-focused, but offers you the opportunity to develop your startup idea, and create actual outputs like a business model canvas, a pitch deck and even a video pitch if you’re keen. In this first week, we take it easy, with optional peer review assessment. This provides an opportunity to explore your ideas and business challenge if you have not already done so.
