Event description

Description

The barrier to entry for people wanting to start a startup is still too high. We want to make it easier for people to start a company. We want to encourage people to consider a startup side hustle as a way to positively impact the world. Side Hustle School wants to equip you with the resources and tools for success while joining a community of entrepreneurs who will encourage and teach each other.

Have you caught yourself Googling “how to start a startup or how to be an entrepreneur?” Can you trust what you find? Will it actually be helpful or just more internet fluff?
Or maybe you have sought out a pro mentor to show you the tight ropes of entrepreneurship. The brutal truth is that most business “experts” have never built or sold a successful startup and push advice that’s narrow and misleading and ignores what actually gives you real profits, customers, and growth.

So you want the freedom and the control that comes from having multiple revenue streams without the inherent risk of starting a business. You've dreamt about creating a low-risk business that gives you the freedom and flexibility to live a life you want. You've heard that there are investors that can fund a great idea and team and you want to know how to get their attention. Then this course is for you.

Wesley will walk you through the key principals of each stage from zero to startup launch including: Why to Start a Startup | How to Get or Validate Startup Ideas | The Technical Chops Required of a Founder in Today's Modern Startup | Building a Market Driven Product | How to Get Early Users and Customers | How to Measure Progress | How to Get Startup Investment | Learning to Code, Design or Sell
