The Boot Camp is a 2-day fast track course and workshop lead by a ClimateLaunchpad certified Boot Camp Trainer. The programme covers all aspects of a high-level pitch deck. The format can be best described as lectures, followed by practical work and peer2peer presentations.
The topics covered are:
- Team (founder’s dream and vision)
- Who is my customer? (what pain or problem does my customer have?)
- What can I do for my customer? (what solution can I offer?)
- How do I make money? (business model and some finance)
After the Boot Camp, participants have sharpened their minds on their business propositions, market segmentation and financial business models.
