This event is hosted over two days on Oct. 29th, and Oct. 31st, 2018.
The Business Model Canvas is designed for individuals who may be considering starting their own business, first-time entrepreneurs with just the start of an idea (or in the early st.ages of their ventures), or individuals looking to join a start-up who want to understand the process of building a new business.
Many businesses fail by not validating their ideas early on with real-life customers. A poorly designed business does not become more profitable or easier to operate through hard work alone. And you could very easily find yourself overworked and with no time to breathe.
You don’t need a 50-page business plan to determine if your idea for a business or social enterprise will be successful. What you need is a business model that clearly demonstrates why your business exists, what job it does and how it’s successful on one-page.
You will develop a plan to get out of the building and test your ideas:
- What are the problems, needs and habits of your customer?
- Which of these is your product or service addressing?
- And how does this determine your minimum viable product?
Gathering, evaluating and using customer feedback to make your product, marketing, and business model stronger is the precursor to a writing a business plan for launch. By the end of this workshop you will know how to discover and validate customers before launch and how to think like an entrepreneur.
