11 Courses On Building A 2-Sided E-commerce Marketplace Startup
I like fundamentals-focused business building, and outline the principles of fundamentals-focused business building in my free Bootstrapping course.
Two-sided marketplaces are becoming increasingly popular in the e-commerce startup world. eBay and Etsy are some of the most obvious examples of two-sided marketplaces, but now we are seeing a lot of niche and esoteric marketplaces as well all over the world.
So what does it take to be successful in this kind of business?
This Udemy course gives you real-world examples of successful two-sided marketplaces, as well as a step-by-step breakdown on how they were built.
You will be able to see that all the 1Mby1M methodology building blocks fundamentals were applied and that’s an important point to remember.
You can, for instance, bootstrap a two-sided marketplace as a solo entrepreneur, with a paycheck, then raise money (or not). You can build a Unicorn (or not).
If you haven’t taken the 1Mby1M fundamental courses before, please review them now.
Though we love bootstrapping, we never rule out funding.
The following set of courses addresses the realities of startup funding at different stages, from Pre-seed to Series A. Use these courses as your guides. Get to know how investors think, so you can speak their language and attain that elusive holy grail of investor-entrepreneur fit.
Here you have it. If you master these essential skills, you’d have an edge over many of your competitors.
