Get the knowledge & confidence to go from idea to product
A non-technical founder’s job is not to learn to code, but to successfully manage the technology production process and make sure it aligns with business goals. To do this, non-technical founders need to understand technology workflows, learn how to ask the right questions and collaborate with designers and developers.
In this class, you will get an overview of the basic concepts you need to run or launch a tech startup as a non-technical founder from someone who has done it themselves.
If you are working on a specific idea, this is an ideal opportunity to get live expert feedback.
What you'll get:
- Class on the Non-Technical Founder's Introduction To Tech
- Guide on how to go from idea to product
- Suggested reading & listening materials for non-technical founders
- Introduction to the Funding Readiness program from Capital Enterprise
- Networking drinks
- 6:00 - 6:30 pm: Doors open & registration
- 6:30 - 7:45 pm: Class & Q&A

Executive MBA, Said Business School, University of Oxford
I thought that the tech for non-techies class by Sophia was absolutely excellent.
Was a really well presented, practical and succinct overview of how to bring a tech product to market – the steps and the people involved.

I attended Tech for Non-Technical Founders and it helped me understand all the aspects involved in developing an app, and helped me get investment to build my first prototype.
Sophia explained everything in a very clear and simple way. I couldn’t recommend this class highly enough.
Hi! I’m Sophia
I'm the founder Tech For Non-Techies, an online learning community. I have contributed to the Financial Times, The Guardian and Forbes on entrepreneurship and technology. I also led the Blackstone x Techstars accelerator at the University of Texas , and guest lectured at Chicago Booth and London Business School.
As a non-technical founder, I have co-created apps and algorithms that have been used by thousands, won App of the Day by Mashable, and were featured by Inc, the BBC and more.
I love helping entrepreneurs and innovators and have advised Chicago Booth’s New Venture Challenge and the Microsoft x London College of Fashion incubator.
I hold an MBA from Chicago Booth, and a BSc (Hons) in Politics from Bristol.
I also speak Russian and French.
I split my time between London and the South of France, where I play tennis and sail with huge enthusiasm and very little skill.
