Dreamstake Academy is an education and mentorship program that provides ‘wantrepreneurs’ and early-stage startup teams with the knowledge, insights, tools and support to refine their ideas, develop a business model, set-up their business, take it to market, and create the foundations and conditions to scale for sustainable growth.

This session alone will provide a crash course focusing on the fundamentals that a startup entrepreneur needs in order to master a successful venture, including: business model creation, project planning, risks, product development, marketing, investment, growth hacking, and many more.


We are going to introduce you to a couple tools used by top startups everywhere to structure their businesses, and then dive into how you can start making real progress. This is a great opportunity to learn different  aspects in one go that will potentially save costly mistakes in the early stages of creating a startup.
