Each module of the Startup Roadmap contains:
  • Steps to Success: A series of steps you complete in order to move on to the next module. Each step contains concrete, actionable tasks to complete, as well as information to help you. Some steps include recommended homework; your mentor may recommend additional work. 
  • With Your Mentor: This section provides suggested topics you can discuss with your mentor. This might include questions you can ask or recommendations on what types of mentors might be best to help you with the current topic. 
  • Resources: Information and resources, including tools, templates, and online workshops, to help you learn more or complete the steps in that module.
