WHO IT'S FOR
This course is aimed at startup founders and those who have a business idea that they want to make a reality. It's also suitable for founders who already have started working on their business but lack knowledge of user experience design.
Since this course is aimed at maximising the value of UX techniques and tools for startups, this course is not suitable for those who want to work in UX. Please refer to our 'Introduction to UX' course which covers and equips you with both the UX tools and the soft skills for working as a UXer in agencies, client side or well-funded startups and SMEs.
