IncubateNYC designs and provides meaningful educational experiences for entrepreneurial people.  This course is designed to ensure that your startup or new business idea is the right one and it can actually succeed.


Sign up for the next five week intensive New Venture Bootcamp today!

This Bootcamp is For You If:
  • You are a first time entrepreneur with an amazing idea, and want to start turning that idea into a real business
  • You wished you had moved a little faster because someone else is now making money off your last idea
  • You started working on an idea, but now its collecting dust on the shelf
  • You are working on your idea and want to make progress much faster

We Will Consider Your Stage of Idea If :
  • You have an idea and basic pitch
  • You have started to build a simple product and want to move a little faster
  • You have a powerpoint deck of your plan and no product
  • You are in the process of building a product and would like to make sure what you are building is what customers want

You Will Leave This Bootcamp With:
  • Knowledge of customer development and "lean startup" principles to help you build a real business
  • A clear 60 second pitch that helps supporters and investors immediately understand your idea
  • A basic prototype of your idea
  • Proof that your idea will (or will not) work

What’s The Commitment?
  • 5 consecutive Wednesdays beginning May 15th  
  • A willingness to be coachable and learn how to launch your dream

If you have an existing team*, please register each of you individually. Email and we will send you the discount code for team members.  The more the merrier!

No co-founders? No problem.  The easiest way to recruit a co-founder is to have proof your idea can work.  We will help you get that proof!

Prepare to be challenged on the assumptions around your business idea.  Expect to do some real hard work.  Anticipate having a few laughs. Walk out with a very basic product, clear next steps for your business, and a few new people to call on for guidance.  

Schedule of Curriculum:
  • Pre-HW     Understanding your "WHY"
  • 5/15/13      Program Overview, Pitch Practice, Customer Conversation  Strategies, Understanding the Problem You Are Solving, Riskiest Assumption Exercise
  • 5/22/13      Lead / Primary Product Feature Exercises
  • 5/29/13      *No Class for Memorial Day*
  • 6/5/13        Business Models, Unit Economics, and Metrics
  • 6/12/13      Product / Market Fit, Investor Deck Framework
  • 6/19/13      MVP Fair

It will be awesome.  See you soon!

What Our Incubatees are Saying!

"Best experience of my life.  I took my idea and made it real, and now people are actually buying it!"
- November 2012 Bootcamp Graduate

" I was featured in Mashable today. I didn't even know until I got home from the Veterans Day parade . You guys have been a huge part of helping me get to this point and this is as much your success as it is mine. Count me in"
- October 2012 Bootcamp Graduate

"Through this process, I discovered the product and features I had built were actually missing the mark from what my intended users actually wanted.  I found the features people actually wanted, and now my active user base is growing!"
- September 2012 Bootcamp Graduate

"...The level of engagement and feedback that was provided last night is encouraging and fuels my quest to ultimately build what the customer wants. IncubateNYC has been a key contributor to the progress made thus far and will continue to be a factor in the progress to be had. It is much appreciated."
- August 2012 Bootcamp Graduate

"I learned entrepreneurship is about finding the wrong answers faster so I can get to the right answers sooner.  IncubateNYC showed me how to fail the right way and now I have a site built that was only a dream before this program.  Thanks guys!"
- July 2012 Bootcamp Graduate
