With guidance/mentorship from experienced startup founders, you will actually start/run REAL ventures (what we refer to as Starter Startups)*

*Spoiler Alert: We believe there are many problems stemming indirectly from certain words and definitions (What IS a Startup? an Entrepreneur? Please, ask 5 different people for their definitions of those two words and let us know how many different responses you receive!)
  • LEARNING WHILE LAUNCHING
    (and EARNING WHILE LEARNING?!)
  • MANAGE & MARKET (& MONETIZE?)
  • PICK & PROMOTE (& PROFIT?)
    Working Individually and/or in Teams, select “Multiple Eggs” (products) from “Multiple Baskets” (categories/collections, by product type or topic) that you will work on and actually share in REAL PROFITS from the projects/products in your Starter Startupsportfolio!
  • COLLABORATE. COMPETE. REPEAT.
    Collaborate
    with other program participants, but also compete against each other for additional profits and prizes (based on criteria such as: product sales, ad revenue, web traffic, social media engagement, etc.).
  • REAL Startup Experience, Entrepreneurship Education, and Personalized Mentoring
  • *Share of Profits* from YOUR designated projects/products —
    [Individual Incentive to COMPETE]
  • *Share of Profits* from ALL TEAMS’ PROJECTS
    [Group Incentive to COLLABORATE]
  • *Winners of various contests and challenges receive additional perks/prizes/profits*
  • At the conclusion of the program, all participants are given the opportunity to negotiate for continued/ongoing participation (profit-sharing and/or real ownership/equity if venture is spun off into separate LLC) for any venture you feel you can provide ongoing value!

* Note: “Profits” are defined as revenue minus expenses, accrual-based accounting, for duration of program, AND for 30 days after program concludes.


LOCATIONS:

“Startups For Students” participants will work from a combination of Atlanta-based startup hubs (potentially to include: Atlanta Tech Village, Switchyards, Ponce City Market, and others). Exact locations for each session will be announced; but all will be accessible via public transportation (so a car is not required).

BACKGROUND READING (optional)

Obviously the part-time “Starter Startups” thing is not going to work for ALL startups (or ALL entrepreneurs!), but there are MANY startup business concepts that can be launched/tested quickly and inexpensively… particularly those based around some of our ViralWhatever.com “Lessons Learned”
