I would like to get guidance on the necessary steps to launch my EdTech startup. I have iterated through customer discovery and the MVP of my soon-to-become-reality business but I want to line up user testing once the prototype is built out.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have entered multiple business and accelerator competitions for my EdTech startup. I have conducted interviews and set up my business plan through my run in the NYCRIN Business Plan competition. I worked on the presentation and clarity of my idea through the CUNY Clash competition, and I was 3rd in the Life Changing Lab startup competition (1st out of those in the ideas stage) which gave me the confidence to move forward as I constructed a pitch deck, presented my idea to venture capitalists, and revised my business plan.
My future goals
My future goals are to launch The Study Space and learn from the experience of being a viable entrepreneur who has a pulse in the educational technology space. I want to iterate through the process to better understand the needs of my customers and then to improve on the app so that the buy-in from my community of users is robust. Eventually I hope to implement my other startup ideas and become a multi-sector entrepreneur.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I am a sponge and eager learner. I listen to directions and I have a lucid understanding of the value of great mentorship. I aim to be successful and I know that a humble approach with ears wide open will be a key cog to the success of The Study Space.
