Online Program Overview

Become a pro at launching your ideas fast and cost-effective

Our part-time, live product program is an immersive 5 week learning experience. You'll take a learn-by-doing approach during live sessions with 10 creators around the world. During the Program you'll understand the product strategy, build multiple prototypes of your ideas, master the latest product tools, gather customer feedback and importantly design and launch your product during Ship it!
Curriculum

Learn-by-doing with a modern start-up curriculum

Our Ship it Program is setup to make you learn creating products step by step with a practical curriculum that focuses 100% on learn-by-doing. Unlike a lot of online courses who are just a bunch of videos, our Program teaches you the latest tools, workflows, and best practices. To save time and nail it from the beginning, we encourage you to complete some reading and practical prep work ahead of the Program.

Who is this for?

Make an investment in your future

Who is this for?

Ship It is for starters with a bias towards action taking. You want to test if your product idea is worth building. For yourself, or with your team. You like working in a cohort model, where you work together with other students as a group. It's also for people who would rather not be invest a lot of time and money in building a product you cannot turn into a business.

Finally, this is for people serious about building their product.

Who is this not for?

  • This is not for people who cannot commit to 8 to 14 hours a week.

    To validate the first version of your product you have to put in the work. In this program you will make the first versions of your product which takes time. After the 5 weeks you will know if your product can turn into a business and how much time you want to make available for it.
  • This isn’t for larger companies looking to hire someone to create their products for them. We aren’t an agency.

    That said, we do have team plans available for 2 or more members of your team. This is perfect for teams wanting to improve their digital products skills.
  • This isn’t for people looking for a magic bullet. Like anything worth achieving, this requires hard work. Making the payment for this program is only the first step in making your product a success.

Learn from professional product designers

In 2019, the failure rate of startups was around 90% (investopedia.com).

But with all the new tech it's easier than ever to build the first version of your product and test if your idea is worth pursuing.

The biggest challenges start-ups have:
- They ran out of money
- They approached the wrong market
- They did a lack of research (building on the wrong assumptions)

That's why we created the Ship it program - to get ideas like yours to the winning 10%.

In the last ten years our approach has helped 100+ companies build successful products. I'd love for you to work with us.
