This practical workshop is all about ideas, structures and approaches to help you build a better business, faster. It is aimed at both aspiring entrepreneurs as well as people who have already started but would like to boost their growth.
It is an opportunity to step back and think about what you want to achieve from life and business, learn something new, meet new people and hear more about the opportunities startupBundaberg has to offer in the coming months, including one-to one mentoring.
The 90-minute interactive workshop will cover:
You and your idea:
- Why start a new business? Personal and business objectives
- Where do new business ideas come from?
- How to generate, evaluate and develop new business ideas
Making it happen:
- Testing your product/service and market assumptions
- Picking the right team
- Faster and smarter: the Lean Startup approach
- Developing your business model
- Money matters, from cheap and cheerful to raising investment
The workshop introduces the Lean Startup Methodology – a refreshing new approach to starting a business, which emphasises experimentation over elaborate planning and getting out of the building to talk with customers rather than assuming you already know what they want.
