Due to its popularity, we're teaching this class for the second time! So come to learn from Nathan Williams and Taariq Lewis' extensive experience!
Writing business plans is boring and shot-in the-dark agony! Figuring out how to convert your awesome business idea into a multimillion dollar success or an Angel Venture Baby is even harder. The competition out there is fierce so how are you going to make sure you and your team have a winning business idea that will make VC's drool?
GET YOUR BUSINESS PLAN AND STARTUP IDEA ROCKET FUEL
Join two MIT Sloan MBAs, Taariq Lewis and Nathan Williams, as they help you quickly build YOUR solid Business Model out of your product ideas and passion. At the end of their workshop and class, you'll be ready to pitch to any incubator, angel investor, and VC about your product market fit. You’ll have a path to millions or billions in business revenue.
