IdeaPros has announced that it is now offering entrepreneurship courses that come with one-on-one brainstorming sessions with a mentor. These virtual mentors comprise real-life entrepreneurs who have founded companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars in valuation.

The company’s self-paced Purpose Driven Entrepreneur course teaches a step-by-step process to starting a new business. Designed with absolute novices in mind, it includes a slew of downloadable learning materials, such as workbooks and checklists.
By taking this course, participants are given the opportunity to consult an IdeaPros mentor about the viability of a business idea or how to best approach investors about a product or app concept.
According to the company, this course was conceived in response to the need for a more accessible entrepreneurship education program that does not involve paying exorbitant tuition fees. “While similar programs are offered in top universities, not everyone has the financial capability to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a four-year program,” a company spokesperson said.
They added that even short certificate courses offered by universities still cost hundreds of dollars monthly.
“With IdeaPros, you can get actionable information and strategies direct from the country’s most innovative founders and executives for as little as $299,” the spokesperson said, referring to the price of the Purpose Driven Entrepreneur.
A recent study has found a link between mentorship and the successful launch of a venture. In August 2022, Virgin StartUp reported that “three-quarters” of business owners consulted a mentor, with those under 34 more likely to seek guidance.
To date, over 350 companies in many high-growth industries have been launched with IdeaPros’ support. Many of these ventures started as back-of-the-napkin ideas that were developed with the guidance of the company’s team of advisors.
“In six short weeks, IdeaPros has helped us move from an idea on a napkin to a fully developed partnership agreement,” one mentee recounted. “Thanks to IdeaPros, we feel ready to move forward in our new venture with confidence.”
