Whether you’re just getting started, stuck on a particular issue or in need of a refresher, this workshop will provide the jumpstart you need to get moving.
The Get-Started Workshop addresses three main needs faced by business starters:
- Explore Your Idea: Participants learn how the start-up business model can help get ideas out of their heads into a format that can be refined over time. They also deep dive into understanding their customers.
- Refine Your Model: Once ideas are mapped out, participants learn how to use customer feedback to refine them. They’re encouraged to find ways to start small to get in front of customers sooner and begin testing their ideas.
- Define Next Steps: As the workshop concludes, participants define actionable steps that can be taken to move their ideas forward.
