4 Weeks to create disruptive solutions

WEEK 1

IDEATION

Each student will pitch their idea, followed by a group vote to choose the top concepts. These winning ideas will form teams around them. With mentor support, teams will create a validated proof-of-concept based on the chosen ideas.

WEEK 2

CREATION

The team will refine the idea and validate it. They will engage with potential users and customers. With these insights, they will build their company’s Minimum Viable Product with the guidance of Schule Z’s mentors. Then they will go to market.

WEEK 3

TRACTION

The ability to generate traction is what separates real startups from mere projects.

They will enter the go-to-market phase : showcase their offering, refine sales, and gain traction. Schule Z’s support, including mentors and classmates, fuels this collective success.

Discover effective marketing, closing sales, and creating compelling ads to reach and convert their market. Our students will challenge their assumptions, whether introverted or extroverted.

WEEK 4

COMPETITION & PITCH

Public speaking is a skill that everyone can benefit from, no matter their field of study. The team will craft a story-driven pitch using Schule Z’s unique methods, preparing them to confidently present to investors and handle their questions during the competition.

Our alumni excel in public speaking and confidence, far surpassing others their age and graduates of other programs. They will develop a strong, confident voice to powerfully express yourself in any situation and convince people to follow their vision.

Together, we can create a powerful impact and inspires the next generation of changemakers.
