Build focuses on forming actionable plans to create a product that solves customer’s problems. Prototypes, beta-software, and demos are developed during the Build stage, and Startupbootcamp invites technical experts to help the Startups create platforms built for scaling.
Sell drives initial traction to gain initial revenue and viral growth.Mentors engage with teams during the Sell stage to improve customer development, sales, and marketing. The teams receive pitch and media training as they prepare for their Demo Day. Demo Day signifies the end of the program when teams typically seek external funding.
