SECOND BATCH GEARS UP FOR LEAN STARTUP CRASH COURSE
For the second time within a year, Qatar Business Incubation Centre prepares to put a new group of young men and women through a grueling and enriching 10-week programme that would serve as a foundation to their entrepreneurial pursuits.
‘Wave 2' consists of 55 participants from 34 startups who have been selected based on the strength of their business ideas. The Autumn edition of the Lean Startup Programme seeks to provide entrepreneurs with a “real hands-on learning experience of how to successfully start a company”. The teams will start by testing the market viability of their product or service by talking to customers, partners and competitors, unlike conventional approaches where the entrepreneurs start developing a prototype even before this crucial exercise. At the end of the programme, entrepreneurs will have their business ideas validated with customers, develop a prototype that customers need, and finish by pitching their new startup businesses to judges and potential investors.
