Savvy expands learning program to include product design modules


Savvy, a global virtual fellowship program designed for aspiring entrepreneurs and young entrepreneurs around the world to support and accelerate their entrepreneurial growth, has expanded its 22-week learning program to include 10 product design modules, taking the entire learning period on Savvy for 32 weeks.

“There’s nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. So at Savvy, we’ve designed a 10-week elective course in product design to help our fellows bring their game-changing ideas to life and turn them into workable products around which they can build an effective business.

This course blends theory and practice to teach you product validation, UI/UX practices, Design Sprint, and the process of defining and tracking actionable metrics for your business,” says Chidi Nwaogu, co-founder of Savvy.

“With our initial 22-week learning program, you learned how to communicate effectively with investors, employees and clients, raise funds for your business, build the right team to execute your strategies, create buzz essential around your product to achieve product-market fit and build customer loyalty.But with these additional product design modules, you will learn more useful concepts like Design Thinking, which is very effective in solving multi-faceted problems faced by many businesses today.

“This extension of the program is simply that we keep our promise that you will find the Savvy online learning platform very useful even after the end of your 12-week fellowship program. These new modules are available during your login, under the Post-Fellowship tab of the Savvy online learning platform. They are completely optional and are not required to receive a certificate of completion.”

According to the UN’s International Labor Organization, 225 million jobs were lost worldwide in 2020 alone, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Savvy is reducing this global unemployment as a result of the pandemic, equipping these recently unemployed people with the knowledge, skills, tools, resources, support network and community they need to build sustainable, innovative businesses. impact-oriented and profitable and become successful self-employed.
