Why this course

The only way to really know is by doing.

 

There is no fixed road to success. It emerges once we start the journey, set our intentions right and are willing to learn throughout the journey.

 

Prototyping is an experimental approach, where one constantly tests their hypothesis and builds next steps based on their findings. It's like making 54 one-week plans rather than a 1 year plan. The beauty of prototyping lies in the fact that new next steps can be designed based on real insights and findings.

 

Through this course we want to equip you with the concept of prototyping and enable you to practice it during the 4 weeks
