One Month Launches Startup Bootcamp Competition Designed to Help Entrepreneurs Get Their Companies Up and Running in Just 30 Days

Judges Include Y Combinator's Kevin Hale; "One Month Startup" Winner Receives $10,000 Cash Prize

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 30, 2015) - One Month, the first-ever online school for entrepreneurs, announced today the first online bootcamp course for entrepreneurs. One Month Startup is designed to help entrepreneurs get their companies up and running in just 30 days.

The course covers:

  • Choosing an idea
  • Building a prototype or website
  • Incorporating your startup
  • Building a team
  • Getting users or customers

One Month Startup participants will have the chance to win a $10,000 cash prize from One Month for the best performing startup. Kevin Hale, Partner at Y Combinator, will be one of several judges for the competition.

"Tech innovation moves at blinding speed," said Hale. "The concept of a 30-day startup is brilliant -- it's like the Amazing Startup Race. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the students come up with."

"We see among our students that often people with good ideas get overwhelmed by the blocking and tackling needed to get their companies off the ground," said Mattan Griffel, Co-founder and CEO of One Month, and a judge for the competition. "One Month Startup is designed to help entrepreneurs quickly progress through the initial steps and prove out their concept so they can get to the important part -- growing their business."

One Month Startup participants pay $499 for access to the 30-day course, and will also receive a one-year unlimited subscription to the award-winning One Month entrepreneur learning platform (normally $990), which offers 10+ additional online classes on tech and business -- such as the best-selling One Month Rails, One Month iOS and One Month Growth Hacking.

One Month Startup opens on Cyber Monday, November 30, and runs from Jan 15 until Feb 15. The curriculum consists of video lectures with related assignments and tasks, such as "Build and publish your website" and "Collect and analyze feedback from at least 5 prospective users."
