Build and validate your startup idea within a few days.

If you have a great startup or product idea that you want to pursue, it's important to quickly validate if it has any potential.  Building a "Minimum Viable Product" (MVP) without code is a great and cost-effective way to figure out if it makes sense to spend more effort, time and resources on the idea.

In this course, you will learn how to define, build and launch a first version of your product that you can test in the real world.

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

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. Introduction
To get started I will share my personal story and journey, show the importance of the right mindset, introduce you to the Lean Startup Framework, teach you the value of using a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and present you the MVP Experiment Canvas that will structure your path towards your own No-Code MVP.

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 value proposition.
When you understand who's problem you want to solve, it's time to construct an offering for these potential customers.

4. Setting up your MVP Experiment - Part 1
After defining WHAT you're going to offer to WHO, we'll continue with setting up our experiment. How are we going to reach our target customer segment? How are we going to engage them? What are we going to test and how are we going to do that?

5. The tools to build an MVP without code.
Before continuing with our experiment setup, you will get acquainted with 10 tools you can use to build your own No-Code MVP.

6. Setting up your MVP Experiment - Part 2
Now that you know the types of tools you can use and what type of experiment you want to run, it's time to sketch your MVP's scenario and workflow. We're also going to define what metrics your are going to measure and determine the criteria of a successful outcome.

7. Step-by-step building guides.
To show what you can do without knowing how to code, I'm taking you through the setup, process and tools to build 6 real life, and working, "No-Code MVP's".

8. Launching & Learning from your MVP experiment
You launched your MVP experiment and analyzed the feedback and information you gathered. Did you learn enough? and (how) should you move forward?

FAQ

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. Besides my own projects I've also worked with dozens of startups and corporates on the developmentlaunch and growth of new products and business initiatives. Learn more about me here.

Why this course?

Even though I'm not a developer, 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 a ton of them, 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 startup idea.

When does the course start and finish?

You get immediate access to all of the content when you enrol. 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 startup idea is not required but the course does include some assignments that you can use for your own idea (and I will give you personal feedback!). The most important thing for this course to have is the right attitude, mindset and an open mind to learn as much as possible.

Who is this for?

No-Code MVP gives you hands-on and practical knowledge to building and validating new startup and product ideas. It's for anyone who wants to know how to minimize the risk associated with new 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

I can't or don't want to pay with a credit card, can I still join?

Of course, I'm happy to have you as my student! Send me an e-mail via bram@nocodemvp.com and we'll make it work.

Can I see a preview of the course?

The first few videos of the course are free get a feel of the course and my teaching style. Check them out in the course content overview.

What if I'm not happy with the content?

If you join this course and you like it, you have lifetime access! If, for whatever reason, it doesn't live up to its promises or your expectations, contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund. The only thing I then ask of you is to provide me with feedback as to how I can improve the course.
