Smart Nation Startup Bootcamp

A session at Smart Nation Startup Bootcamp


Course Overview
Ash Maurya, the author of Running Lean, said, "Most products fail. Not because we fail to build what we set out to build, but because we waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product."

Hence, our goal is to help entrepreneurs validate their ideas and build products that customers want.

In partnership with Lithan Hall Academy, we are offering a startup bootcamp stretched over 6 weeks (PART TIME) where you will learn how to build and validate a business case for your Smart Nation idea by working alongside seasoned mentors with proven entrepreneurial and corporate experience.

You will also hear first hand from successful entrepreneurs and business leaders how they have utilized proven techniques like crowdsourcing, growth hacking, business model generation and channel and distribution strategies to create and scale their businesses.

At the end of the bootcamp, you will get to pitch your Smart Nation idea to a group of angel investors. This bootcamp is for Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based business ideas.

Our bootcamp equips entrepreneurs to:
