The Tetuan Valley Startup School is a free 6 week intensive program for entrepreneurs who are in the very early stages of their tech project.
In six weeks we help you get from start to grow – to get your first prototype, first users or first clients.
Each week there is a session covering a different topic: effective presentations, value proposition, business models and metrics, product development and UX, legal & finances, and investment. We will cover everything you need to know when starting your startup. Our mentors are experienced entrepreneurs that are expert in each of these topics.
Our program puts a lot of emphasis on getting your pitch right and selling your idea well. That is why half of each session is dedicated to pitch practice. Each team has 3 minutes to give their pitch, and then there are 7 minutes of feedback from the audience. It is amazing how much the teams progress in just 6 weeks!
The Startup School is not only made up of mentor sessions and pitch practice. After the product development session there is a hackathon, where all the teams get together to work on their projects. 48 intense hours of coding with the best tech mentors to help you launch your prototype or add user-validated functionalities to your product.
At the end of the program all teams pitch and show their demo at the Demo Day, an event attended by over 100 people including accelerators, investors, and members of the Madrid startup ecosystem.
