Week 1 of the 10-week 2017 McGill X-1 Accelerator has come and gone. As participants readied their startups for the journey to investment and launch, they got to know the program and each other, as well as Bill Aulet’s seminal book, Disciplined Entrepreneurship, which will be their roadmap through the program.
Up next were talks about legals and IP, team development, and value proposition. Finally, participants were treated to their first Grilled by CEO Session, where they gave their pitch to TandemLaunch CEO Helge Seetzen and had their weaknesses examined.
A daunting first week? Maybe, but exciting and inspiring, too.
