How we Teach Validation

Serial Entrepreneur and VC Francis Simisim, CTO Alex Alabiso, Rey P. Macrohon and our students all agree. Validation is a critical first step to success

We Show You How to Get Results

We're aware that the coaching program is not something everyone can make a time commitment to and afford it. So we decided to record these lessons so you can take them at your own time and pace then made the price more accessible so we can help more people.

Enrolling in this online course gives you access to the same lessons the coaching program participants get at a much lower cost!

This program uses the best elements of Lean Startup, Design Thinking, and Agile frameworks. The skills you learn here will be applicable not just for your current startup - but for any startup or innovative idea you might have in the future.

  • Start generating revenue within 3 - 6 weeks and reduce your initial investment

  • Get to know your customers intimately. Their goals, frustrations, values motivations, etc

  • Take a scientific approach and design experiments to systematically test your riskiest assumptions

  • Align your team with customer pesonas and journey maps

  • Quantify what's working and what's not through the sales funnel

  • Learn with others who are going through the same journey with the same challenges

Will this course help you?

“There's a lot of mention about "validating" ideas for startups from various online sources. However, the problem especially for a beginner like me, is that I don't know the how's and what's in order to do proper validation.

The knowledge you bring in your talks is the answer to that.

After the webinar earlier, I was thinking that we probably need to realign things now especially that we're not yet far in building the tech "solution" we have come up initially”

About Carlo and Startup PH Training

After failing in my VC-funded tech startup which I founded and ran for two years, I found myself teaching other founders how to not make the same mistakes through lots of coffee and running public workshops. I also started doing private workshops like the startup training program by PSIA and DICT, the Ideaspace Program, Smart Sweep (for college students) to name a few.

Soon I found myself doing private corporate innovation training where I taught Design Thinking and Agile to government units and larger corporations such as Phivolcs, Department of Agriculture, Microsoft, PNB, Cebuana, Alveo, and more.

Finally, I've had the opportunity to bring the same highly interactive workshops into higher education by teaching entrepreneurship in Mint (Meridian College), CIIT College of Arts and Technology, and now CIIT Senior High School. I barely did exams but I did give a lot of homework and expected them to find paying customers. And find them they did.

So now I want to share the same learning to more people, practice what I preach, and build my career through digital products and coaching programs.

The Tragic Startup Founder's Story

Here’s a startup founder’s journey that I keep seeing play out time and again. 


You come across a fantastic idea that (you think) nobody or only a few has thought of and you're convinced that pursuing this idea will dent the universe (or at least the industry it’s in), It will also transform the lives of the founders, of everybody else involved and the people you will help. 


So you start looking for co-founders, a developer and maybe investors. 


After a lot of searching and talking, you find co-founders but no investor. You hire a developer (or one of your oo-founders knows a thing or two) and start building the app. 

After a few hundred thousand (or millions of) pesos and several months, after endless debates with your co-founders of what should and shouldn't be included, you're ready to show the world what you've created. So you launch. 


Then only a few sign up. And the few that sign up don’t understand and don’t use the app. You scramble and hustle your way to figure things out until you either run out of money or come to the painful realization that you've built something nobody needs.


In this course, we'll take it step by step from idea to real startup through a series of experiments to test your assumptions. We start from the riskiest until we get to your early adopters - also known as paying customers.
