Hi everyone! This is Abdo Riani

My startup journey began almost 8 years ago when I learned how a few lines of code can make such a big impact in people’s lives.

I founded and self-funded my first startup at 20. It was a platform that rewarded users for their eco-friendly actions. It went from just an idea to a scalable and profitable startup in a little over a year and a half. With no technical skills or prior startup experience, the journey was extra bumpy.

Ever since then, I initiated and was involved in the launch of over 50 startups.  Currently, I am the founder of AspireIT and StartupCircle where we provide passionate entrepreneurs with all the necessary resources to turn ideas into valuable and viable startups.

With my Udemy class, I have set one goal: remove the friction out of validating ideas.

I’m frequently approached for startup advice and the first thing I usually hear is, I need to validate my idea fast so let’s build an MVP. Yes, an MVP will help you validate/iterate/pivot fast but have you thought about it this way?

I will use my first venture as a case study to show you how entrepreneurs can get an extra layer of quantitative validation with just an idea and before building a web/mobile application. I learned the hard way the first time but thereafter, the approach I will expose you to in the course saved me years in product development time and money. It has also made a major impact in the ventures of those I guide/mentor.

I look forward to meeting you in the course. Feel free to learn more about me and ask me any questions at my personal website.
