Last November, infoDev invited 18 early-stage mobile entrepreneurs to Washington, DC to participate in its first Mobile Startup Camp. The five-day program of lectures and hands on workshops provided participants with an opportunity to refine their product strategies, business models and marketing pitches, sharpen their negotiating skills, and network with investors and peers. These sessions were led by a select group of top coaches and mentors with extensive experience supporting entrepreneurs on their journey from ‘mind to market’.
Videos for several of these lectures are now available to stream online, including:
Business Modeling Methodologies - What is the business model canvas and how can it help you understand, design and differentiate your business model?
Raising Smart Capital and the Role of Mentors and Accelerators - What is the right type of capital for your business and how do you raise it? What are the pros and cons of mentors and accelerators?
Crowdfunding for Entrepreneurs - What are the different types of crowdfunding, and what is the future of the industry in developing countries?
