Once you have read/watched all the material related to the Intro lecture, record a 1 minute video in which you tell what you would like to learn in the course, ie what kind of value you would like the course to create for you!
Upload ink to the video about your learning goals for the course (you should upload the video on a video platform, eg Youtube or Vimeo) and then include a clickable link to the video here. Use a file for the link (eg PDF file).
Team member promise is your personal plan and goal of what kind of team member you are wishing to be on the course. The team member promise will serve you as a reference point in the end of the course when you will reflect on your personal team experience. Write a description by taking the view of others: What would you like the others will tell about you as a team member after the course? How do you want that others will describe you as a partner is a team?
Add your team member promise as a short file (txt, Word or PDF).
Online marketing content, deadline Mon, Feb 25 21:00.
- Content plan
- 4-5 content pieces (4 for teams size 5, 5 for teams size 6). The idea is that everyone (except COO) will write one content piece. The piece means any type of marketing material for any channel - blog post, the poster with infographics, video, twit, article etc. You can make different materials for more/less the same channels. If you have video or smth else that you can't upload in MyCourses, you can upload pdf or doc. with a link. The material should be different, channels could be the same. One small notice - materials should follow the principles of inbound marketing - you shouldn't tell customers about your solution, instead -try to grasp customer's attention by talking about the topic, industry and users' problems.
- Please name your files with the team name or number!
When building prototypes, it is always a very good idea to test the prototype before taking it to real customers. In this workshop you will be testing one of your prototypes with your peers in the class.
To be completed before class:
Prepare a prototype (that you will then take to your customers/users for testing). For this session, the prototype should be such that it can be tested in the normall class environment.
Bring the prototype to the lecture. You should have:
Experiment canvas prepared
Be prepared to shortly describe your prototype (purpose and design)
Be prepared to test the prototype with your peers in class.
You will test with 3 other teams, so make sure you can redo the test 3 times. One test should optimally take about 10, no more than 15 minutes.
To be completed after class:
Complete the Experiment Canvas with the outcome of the tests with your peers.
Implement possible changes to your prototype based on feedback from your peers.
The Financing part will consist of 2 session with Tuomas Maisala, who is a startup advisor focusing on helping startups get early financing.

Prepare a 20 minute investment negotiation with an investor/finanser of your choice. You should assume that the party you are negotiating with has seen your last pitch deck so do not (just) duplicate that content.
