No-Code MVP 👨‍💻 by Bram Kanstein

No-Code MVP 👨‍💻

Learn the mindset, process and tools to turn your business idea into a first product you can test with real potential customers - without writing a single line of code.

Want to find out if your new business idea is any good, but don't know where to start?

If you have a great idea that you want to pursue, it's important to figure out quickly if it has any potential. Do you understand the problem you want to solve? who's experiencing this problem? and do you know what type of solution these potential customers are looking for? 

I made this course to teach and share the systematic approach you can follow to turn your idea into a solid value proposition, talk to potential customers and work with a Lean Mindset to define a Minimum Viable Product that you can test.

On top of that, I'll show you how to quickly build that product yourself, without learning or knowing how to code.

These "No-Code MVP's" are a great and cost-effective way to minimize the risk of new business ideas and figure out if it makes sense to spend money, time and resources pursuing them. I hope you join me on this ride! 🚀

What you will learn

This course is divided into 8 chapters to make sure you get the best learning experience possible. Starting from the fundamentals all the way to launching and learning from your very own Minimum Viable Product.

1. An introduction to Lean Startup.
The MVP is part of the Lean Startup Framework, the most relevant and effective approach to building products people want.

2. Understanding your potential customers and their problems.
New business ideas are mostly about end-products (which is good!), but you have to take a step back to investigate and understand who's problem(s) you want to solve.

3. Turning your idea into a solid value proposition.
When you understand who's problem you want to solve, it's time to construct an offering for these potential customers.

4. Turning your value proposition into an MVP.
When it comes to building a solution, there are always assumptions that pose a threat to your idea, the right MVP helps you to understand if these are valid or not.

5. The tools to build an MVP without code.

It's time for the fun part! Putting your MVP in the hands of real potential customers and learning from their experiences.

FAQs

Why this course?

I'm NOT a developer but I love to build and try out new ideas. Ever since I found the tools you can use to build products without code, I've been fascinated by their powers. After trying and using them all, I decided to build this course to teach anyone you don't need to code, raise money or hire a CTO to start working on your business idea.

Who are you?

My name is Bram Kanstein. I'm a non-technical internet entrepreneur and startup expert who's built, launched and sold two "no code" products in the past two years. I've also worked with dozens of startups and corporates on the *development*, *launch* and *growth* of new products and business initiatives. Learn more about me here.

Who is this for?

No-Code MVP gives you hands-on and practical knowledge to kickstart and validate new business ideas. It's for anyone who wants to learn how to minimize the risk associated with new business ideas, and figure out if it makes sense to spend money, time and resources pursuing them:

● (Aspiring) Entrepreneurs
● Product Managers & Marketers
● Corporate Innovators & Intrapreneurs
● Innovation Managers & Directors
● Small Business Owners
● Students

When does the course start and finish?

You get immediate access to all of the content when you enroll. No-Code MVP is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start, pause, do the assignments and when you finish.

Are there any prerequisites?

Did you guess that you don't need to know how to code for this course? 😉Woohoo!

It's definitely helpful if you know how to work with computers and the internet + have time to dedicate to this course.

Having an existing business idea is not required but the course does include some assignments that you can use for your own idea. The most important thing for this course to have is the right mindset and an open mind to learn as much as possible.
