Event description

Description

Do you have an idea for an app or a web-based business, but no idea how to begin building it? In this workshop you will get an overview of the basic disciplines that you need to have to run or launch a tech startup as a non-technical founder from someone who has done it themselves. A non-technical founder’s job is not to learn to code, but to successfully manage the technology production process and make sure it aligns with business goals. To do this successfully, non-technical founders need to understand technology workflows, learn how to ask the right questions and collaborate with designers and developers.

The workshop will begin at 10:30 am and end at 5 pm. You will get one hour to get lunch and will also have coffee breaks throughout the day.

In this workshop, you will learn:

1) The product lifecycle:

  • Workflow: from idea to product. The steps to take and the professionals invovled
  • How to learn what you really need and avoid the rest
  • Investors’ view

2) Product Management basics:

  • What product managers do and how that fits into the job of running a startup

3) Design

  • Why designing for users is different to designing for beauty
  • How to test if users like and understand your designs
  • How to connect design to code

4) Development

  • Languages
  • Why one costs more than the other
  • Back end and server basics

5) Analysis, AI and the feedback loop

  • How to analyse your product for continuous improvement
  • What data scientists really do
  • AI decision tree: not as hard as it sounds

This workshop assumes no prior knowledge of technology.

This course is great for:

  • Entrepreneurs who want to build technology products but do not have technical backgrounds
  • Non-technical professionals working in tech companies
  • Business school students who want to supplement their business knowledge
  • Professionals wanting to transition to the fast-growing technology sector

Bonuses

  • Downloadable resources
    • Checklists, PDF guides, further reading suggestions (total combined value £600)

The instructor’s story:

When I left Chicago Booth, a business school consistently ranked as the global number 1 by Bloomberg and Business Week, I had a top tier MBA and great marketing skills, but had no idea about tech. In my journey of founding and building Enty into a global company, with an app, a website, an analytics panel and its own unique machine learning algorithm, I have had to delve into a complicated new world.

As a non-technical founder, learning tech skills and product management was costly, time consuming and often frustrating. I took online courses, read books, learnt some code, spoke to developers, product managers, data scientists and analysts and finally came up with a system to evaluate what I really needed to learn, and what I didn’t. I created this course for other entrepreneurs with non-technical backgrounds, to help them save time and money.
