In the Startup Crash Course, you will learn how to develop a start-up idea into a successful business model and how to a win a startup pitch. As for today, 99% of new businesses fail. We, the creators of this course, think that the main reasons are some myths around the startup scene, which lead to wrong expectations and crippled instruments. The main goal of this course is to increase the success rate of startups. The course offers knowledge on how to start a company and push it to success.

It will have three main parts: the structured approach, hands-on experimentation and feedback. The structured approach is given through lectures and case studies, which serve as a compass. The hands-on experiment consists of individual and group work that makes you try all the new concepts and implement them to your business idea. Feedback comes from interaction with successful entrepreneurs and startup scene players.
