Message From Me

Hey there, entrepreneurs! My name is Ritesh Agarwal, founder and CEO of OYO Rooms. I’ve always had a passion for solving problems, and this passion lead me to start my very first company at just 13 years old. Since then, I continued chasing innovative ideas and solutions until, one day, I came up with one that would change my life forever. That solution was OYO.This pre-recorded class is targeted at one of the most important steps of becoming a founder: your pitch. I designed this course to give you the skills to refine and perfect your pitch, so that you can get all the support your idea needs to become a reality. Through a series of video lessons and resources, I share exactly how to form an idea, craft a pitch, and present it to investors.Theory alone isn't going to make you a founder, so you're going to be creating the tools you need to take the first steps. You'll create a billion dollar idea, craft your pitch with feedback from your facilitators, and write emails and your business plan. Better yet, you will be learning alongside other entrepreneurs from around the globe, forming an international community of forward-thinking, successful founders.Every big success comes with a 5 to 10 year story. Here’s your opportunity to start yours. All you have to do is take it.
