The long-term plan for The Do Lectures is to start a school for entrepreneurs. A school where you go to start your start-up. On a farm that grows companies instead of food. An ideas farm. An accelerator of great business ideas.
Where you learn by doing and not by reading. And the best teacher of all is the business that you start.
The incubator school will guide you
from your idea, your strategy, to branding it, to building it, to scaling it, to protecting it, to pitching it, to help finding funding for it.
You will have people guiding you have started start-ups. Real practical experience in a fast moving world. Our contacts from doing The Do Lectures give us contacts with some of the most amazing start-ups/people in the world.
The school will choose who attends, and will pay them a small fee to attend. The term will be 12 weeks. In return, we will get a small stake in your start-up, so we have a very good reason to make you succeed.Â We believe in business and how it can change the world for the better, so the school will be a business too.
The school will focus on businesses that use the internet to change the world.
The â€˜36 hour start up is our way of of quickly beta testing the incubator school and accelerate the learning. That will help us start a school sooner rather than later. It will be a one-off event. It will be teach us if this will work. Or if it will fail. But it will do so at speed.
â€œ36 hour start upâ€.
If you like your sleep, this course is not for you. There will be no sleep. If you like working on your own, this course is not for you. If you like agreeing with everyone, this course is not for you. If you like a nice relaxed easy-going environment, this course is not for you. If you donâ€™t like being challenged, stressed, up against it, this course is not for you. If you donâ€™t like pizza at 4am,Â this course is probably not for you either.
Oh and by the way, trust us, we have never done this before.
Date: Mid May. Ish.
It will start on a Friday morning at 9am. And it will end 9pm Saturday evening.
The will be no
Fee to pay. There will be no more than 10 places. There will be mentors in the shed. And there will be other mentors via Skype all through the night.
More details will follow. But right now, you don’t have to do anything. Apart from think about why we should pick you to attend.
