Startup Bootcamp is intended for all professionals who wish to launch their own startup, but aren’t sure if this is the right move for their career and whether their idea is worth the risk, resources, and time needed for its realization.
Through direct testing, hands-on experience, and consultations with mentors and founders, you will build your MVP (minimum viable product) and learn how to present your startup both to a wide market, and potential investors.
What Can You Expect After 14 Days of Bootcamp?
You will know whether your idea is viable and feasible, how to predict costs, and whether it’s worth investing your time and resources into further development of your project.
You will connect with relevant mentors, experts, and entrepreneurs from both Serbia and abroad, who could be the key to your startup’s success.
