It Happens Live and Online

The Workshop happens live and online. We keep the workshop student numbers to a maximum of 20 students, so you get personal attention and can get answers from Pelser to your most pressing questions in real time.

Interactive

The workshop is interactive - which is fancy-speak for you are going to do actual work during the workshop 🙂 You will receive your complimentary Chapter2 Startup Playbook when you enroll. You will use the Playbook to complete the lessons we will be covering in the workshop. This Playbook will be yours to keep - we think you will like it 😉

You will have practical steps to follow

After the workshop, Pelser will give you practical advice on how to go out into the real world and implement your business plan, i.e. actually start your business. You will know what the next steps are and how to go about implementing them.

I'm Pelser, your instructor

I have been working on startups for more than 20 years.

Every obstacle a new entrepreneur might face, I’ve seen it.  From having an idea but no clue how to get started, to starting a business with no product and figuring out how to make it work.  I have been through the struggle of startup more times than I care to count.  Through the years, I have learned what works and what doesn’t work, what looks shiny but actually stinks and what looks like a bad idea at first but have massive potential.

I have mentored, coached and trained countless budding entrepreneurs through the years and understand what it takes to start and grow a business.

General Overview

You will actively work on your startup throughout the workshop, which means you will not only receive the knowledge that comes with the workshop, but walk away with tangible results that you can implement immediately to grow your startup.

A Startup in its purest form, is a solution to a problem.  Some solutions are worth building and paying for, some are not.  Find out if yours is worth building before you start.

Is your solution something clients will pay for?  Is your solution a big enough idea?  Find out if your solution is scalable before you start.

How will you know if you are winning?  How will you know if you are making progress? How will you measure this?  Lets show you how to figure this out

You have an idea, but what makes your approach or idea unique?  What sets you apart from the rest?  Lets guide you through figuring out what your UVP is.

What do you know about your product or service that no one else knows?  What is your angle when pitching your product or service?  Let us guide you through figuring this out.

How will you reach customers and how will customers find you?  Channels will solve this problem!

You will have different customers segments, but how to know which these are?  We will show you how to figure out your customer segments.  

You will have costs when building your startup.  You should know what your cost structure will look like so you can build scalable business model.

Which revenue streams should you cater for? Which one’s look good but are not necessarily good for your business?

Your first set of customers, will not look the same as your eventual customers.  Figuring out who your early adopters are, will give you the motivation and early wins of making that first sale.
