Helping you taking the first steps to make your idea journey a success.

Overview

You have a great idea but the first steps on how to put it into practice are always a bit daunting. We know it, because we've done it. This is a 10 week programme tailored to guide you through those first steps.

  • First time founders who are building businesses with creativity and values at its core.

  • Don't need any business or tech background.

How does it work?

The programme lasts 10 weeks and it is a mixture of group workshops, 1-2-1 sessions advice along the way and a prototype build.

Train

We don't want to do it for you. Instead we want to equip you with the knowledge to build a purposeful business from the inside out.
You will take part in a series of interactive workshops to lay the groundwork of any business: validate your assumptions.

  • Market research
  • The lean business canvas
  • What is an MVP?
  • How to test and validate ideas
  • Understand the technology

Support

We are here to support you. Throughout the 10 weeks you will have a series to 1-2-1 sessions tailoring the support to your goals.

  • Advice and expertise from mentors
  • Help and advice around design, pitching and development

Execute

This is when things start to get exciting! Together we will plan, build your first prototype and lay out the roadmap for your startup.

  • Defining your MVP
  • Creating wireframes
  • Validating your prototype
  • Incorporate your company
  • Create your pitch deck

Real results

At the end of the programme you will have validated your idea, maybe even changed it, have a clear plan of where you are going and how you will get there, a great pitch deck and a prototype. Basically all you need to make a great impression with investors or even start generating your first revenue. Once you are ready for the next step, you can always check out our Grow it programme.

When can I start?

We run the programme every quarter starting from January. For the next available dates please contact alessia@codeandwander.com

How much does it cost?

A lot of time goes into preparing these workshops, and making sure the advice is tailored to your needs. We also create the wireframes and testing prototype for you. We therefore ask for £2,500 (excl VAT).
