Slingshot has taken the key elements of our renown 12 week Accelerator program and condensed them into a 4 week course; fast tracking your business model, gaining traction and giving you the skills to pitch. The course focuses on a concentrated entrepreneurial curriculum delivered through face-to-face workshops, exploring Business Modelling, Growth Hacking, Value Proposition and Pitch Coaching.
