Educational startup One Month promises to help build coherency and knowledge in certain areas of programming and business in just 30 days’ time. Now, the company is expanding on that idea by helping aspiring entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground in just four weeks.

The company’s new bootcamp, ‘One Month Startup,’ will take participants through every phase of creating a startup — from ideation to prototyping and initial user acquisition — in 30 days.

The startups can then enter a competition, with judges including Y Combinator’s Kevin Hale, with the best startup walking away with $10,000. Participants must submit a video application to be included, with the competition occurring at the end of the program

One Month CEO Mattan Griffel described the program in an accompanying blog post:

This is for people ready to jump in and start a company—a startup—right away. You probably have a business idea, an MVP, or an early test of it ready. You might even have an early prototype of your product, or you have your cofounder, but you haven’t tested your idea yet. There are many places you can be at where you feel like you don’t have all the puzzle pieces sorted out just yet.

‘One Month Startup’ will cost students $499, and includes a one-year subscription to the company’s entrepreneur platform. The course will run from January 15 to February 19. Those interested in participating can sign up for the class today, with open enrollment lasting until December 4 or when spaces fill up.
