Did you know:
Every big idea started with just that, AN IDEA! Now, we know that it must be hard to believe that a simple idea can grow to reach a billion people but this is how the biggest companies started. Such a huge vision cannot start alone so at New Founder School give you all the support you need!
It all starts with small steps
You must be thinking, what about the perfect time? An idea needs a lot of time and money! How can YOU start something meaningful without that? Right?
NO! The birth of a great idea starts with small steps and the right direction. What if we told you that our founder, Arjita Sethi, could help with both those things? After starting 4 successful startups, she has realised that so many dreamers don’t even take a chance on their ideas because they don’t get the right frameworks, the right training and the support. And she is offering just that.
So while you are sitting and thinking in your office or in your class or in front of your screen, dreaming about an idea that makes your passionate or excited, give yourself a real chance and become from a Dreamer to a Founder in 12 weeks!
Inside the program
A journey that covers frameworks, hands on experience & case studies, all in a community setting that will hold you accountable.
This will happen in the ideathon!
What is the founder DNA? Is the entrepreneur life really for you? What exactly does your idea mean? Get clarity on all these questions during this module.
Your idea is great but is it really a business idea? Let's take it through the market analysis frameworks in this module.
Competitor Research Who else is out there? What are they doing right and where are they missing the mark? This is key for any founder to understand so they can position themselves the right way.
Finish this level by finding clarity on your users.
Building a customer pipeline Who will use your product? Who will PAY for it? Most entrepreneurs become great innovators but to be a powerhouse of a CEO, you must get customers to PAY for your solution.
Interview Users How to talk to users? How to understand what value are they looking for? What feature should you build first? Let's walk you through the framework to do REAL user interviews.
Prototype and test like a PRO Instead of building the full product, first build an MVP. Test it out with a small group of people and then get feedback.
Beat these levels and build your startup roadmap!
Business Models What sets successful entrepreneurs apart? The fact that they understand the value of revenue and where they will make money from.
Roadmap to success:
When to get your first hire? When to seek funding? When to launch a new feature? Planning and organization is KEY for solo or part time founders.

The idea school is for you if this sounds like you:
- I have so many ideas, how do I find clarity?
- I have a full-time job, how do I find time to work on my ideas?
- I don’t have the money, how do I build my big vision?
- I want to see if the founder life is for me or not!
