The Fine Pitch

Now that you know what investors like in businesses and founders, you need to make your case before them - tell them why you’re worth being invested in, and rally them to get behind your vision.

For that, you need to be pitch-perfect - as in perfect that pitch deck.

This course will:

  • Teach you how to create the best pitch deck for investors
  • Give you the low down on the content your pitch deck will need
  • Teach you some important metrics that investors consider while making investment decisions
  • Teach you how to tell your story in a way that investors want to jump in and join you this journey called entrepreneurship

This short, quick course is really all you’ll need to get started on your presentation, and the best way to tell your story.

Building in India, for India

Building in a country as economically and culturally diverse as India comes with a lot of challenges - but thankfully for you, there have been many who’ve trod the path already and can tell you about some of those obstacles.

This course will teach you not only how to build in India, for India, but also build for India’s grassroots - a major up and coming group that ecosystem stakeholders have been rooting for to digitise.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How to easily overcome major challenges while building in India
  • What it takes to build for different parts of India - culturally, socio-economically and even linguistically
  • How the grassroots economy works, and how you need to build a business that fits those specific layouts
  • Ways in which Indian businesses can scale
  • How you can build a business inside the government network

The course features speakers from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Paytm, GGV Capital - an international VC firm, and Sequoia, among many others.
