Alex Weekes is a consultant and product manager with eight years experience working with startups and businesses to manage projects and develop products. In the early stages of working with startups, Alex started to notice a pattern of mistakes made time and time again. He recognised that often, a simple process implementation could make or break a business.
Before embarking on any journey, it's crucial to ensure you are prepared. However, the technology industry relies on innovation, and the mystery surrounding technological innovation is a barrier for those wishing to turn their ideas into fruition. The knowledge and processes necessary to generate a product from initial conception should be more accessible to those wanting to break into the industry. Many founders struggle to find that sweet spot between "building the parachute on the way down" and "analysis paralysis", simply not knowing what they need to know to kick off their idea. Alex's work focuses on consulting and educating founders and entrepreneurs on the best practice and success principles to navigate these areas.
"I believe technological innovation drives the human experience. Using technology to automate particular areas of life will ultimately leave us free to focus our attention on other, more quintessentially human experiences.
"It is this belief and knowledge that drives me to break down walls for my clients and allow them to bridge that gap between ideation and execution."
Kick Off is the product of years of experience and expertise helping founders and entrepreneurs to navigate their startup journey, condensed into one, 6-week course.
