Can your Startup do this:

  • get potentially fundable Traction - Product/Market Fit - in 3 to 6 months? 
  • build a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) with 1 week of Product Development? 
  • lower development costs up to 75% with a Product that "just works"?
  • increase user/customer engagement with Activities - Features that "emerge"?
  • refine your Strategy for Acquisition & Monetization every month?


You can - with the 4-Week Startup (4WS)!

Startups from Silicon Valley to Iowa,  Australia to India are applying the 4WS program.

“we were going down a development path doomed for failure and didn't know it! Murali turned us around in the right direction … The time and money spent bringing him in has definitely been saved over and over again 1 year later”

Agile Entrepreneurs presents: the 4-Week Startup (4WS) Workshop 

Sat, Aug 18, 9am - 6pm  Buy your  ticket now!

  • an intense all-day hands-on coaching for Product Leaders and Entrepreneurs
  • on Business Strategy | Product Strategy | Go-to-Market Strategy
  • for your own Product/Startup


Who should attend?

• Entrepreneurs      • Product Leaders      • Investors 

Ok, so what do I do in the workshop:

You will create a single source of truth with three simple, flexible, interoperating models of your product strategy & business plan, execution capability, and project roadmap (including Kanban boards for user stories, tasks, defects).

  • Visioning Phase: Vision driven Features 
  • Go-to-Market Strategy Phase: Milestone driven Activities
  • Agile/Lean Implementation: ROI driven metrics for Agility, Quality, and “Definition of DONE” for User Stories/Activities, and grades for monthly strategic Plans.

You will also implement this model in ThoughtWorks Mingle, a FREE commercial Agile Product/Project management tool for teams of 5 users or less. (Or if you prefer another tool with similar capabilities, you can choose to map it on your own.)

The final payoff is when you map  4WeekStartup model of your product/startup to a detailed, month-by-month Operational Plan spreadsheet that you will use to manage your monthly burn rate effectively and summarize your funding needs and "use of proceeds" with investors.  

And change it all at will as market realities change.
