The Shortcut School of Startups is a three-week series of interactive sessions, in the fields of business, design and tech. It equips participants with necessary skills and brings them closer to starting their own path either as an entrepreneur or by joining a team in this vibrant environment. The only requirements to attend are genuine interest, hunger for learning and proficient English skills.
1) Business Ideation Weekend (20–21 May) with a focus on learning the process of ideation and coming up with business ideas, which can be turned into scalable businesses.
2) Digital Prototyping Weekend (3–4 June) with a focus on how can we bring an idea into life through prototyping. We are very proud to announce that the event is co-organised with Toughbyte, taking place in Techcode’s premises and sponsored by SUPERCELL.
In addition to all the learnings, there are amazing prizes awaiting the participants: Slush conference tickets, Junction tickets, 1:1 coaching sessions with various tech influencers and mentors, and a co-working space for startups. Sign up for Shortcut events HERE.
