The weekend covers a deep dive into brand building and early messaging, and the roadmap to your first 100 paying customers. Finally, you'll prep to grow a team, with leadership and culture fundamentals.

"I am a graduate of Stanford and have attended the YC online startup school, and I must say this programme matches up with the best in the industry. The most beneficial element for me was the hands-on, personalised advice and 1-1 support"
