Builders Bootcamps

As builders our instinct is to get in the weeds immediately. But this is exactly why founders find themselves sinking time and resources in the early days of building.

To be different, we have to validate first and validate often, inching ever towards product-market fit. Learn how in our Builders Bootcamps.

Bootcamp 01:
Validate Your Idea

Gain clarity on the idea validation process. Then, learn the fundamentals of market sizing, how to optimize customer interviews, and best practices for beta testing and pivoting. 

From OCT 19 to OCT 21

Bootcamp 02:
Towards Product-Market Fit

Bring your solution to market with guidance on how to design a product strategy, align your product strategy with GTM plans and pricing, and confidently build in public.

From NOV 9 to NOV 11

How you'll engage

This is not a lecture hall experience. Our bootcamps are designed for you to engage and unlock value in real time.

You'll get direct access to experts through high-participation Live Sessions and Office Hours. Collaborate with your peers through our Actionable Homework exercises.

Live Sessions

Tailored just for you:

  • Speakers share direct learnings from their product and pivoting experience.
  • Participate to react, ask questions, and contribute insights.

Office Hours

Make the most of rapid fire 1:1 Office Hours meetings by:

  • Get guidance on challenges and opportunities you're undertaking.
  • Build connections with our speakers and your peers.

Actionable Homework

An (optional) light exercise that will help you:

  • Start actioning what you've learned instantly.
  • Compare notes with your peers and learn collaboratively.

Powered by Propel

We are home to current and future founders focused on finding impact, satisfaction, and success in their work.

Our members enjoy free access to this bootcamp, further programming, a peer community, and more benefits.

What is the format of these sessions?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

We'll host the speaker-led sessions live and share out replays to all bootcamp participants. We encourage you to attend each session in order to get the maximum impact from and access to our speakers. We'll also connect you with peers to engage in between sessions and after the bootcamp ends.

What is the difference between joining the bootcamp as an attendee and being a Propel member?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

Propel members are builders like you. They have access to our 300+ person community and all of our programming outside of bootcamps (e.g. founder AMAs, workshops with leadership coaches, brainstorming and pitch sessions). We're accepting members to our fall class - apply today.
