Event description


Starting Lean: Value Proposition

(3 sessions, 4 hours each)

Entrepreneur's Toolkit Workshops are experiential, hands-on workshops facilitated by experienced entrepreneurs. The workshops offer ventures tools, mentoring and peer feedback to solve specific problems and develop essential business components.

In each four-hour session you will generate a deliverable that you will use frequently in the business development process.

Do you have an idea or a product that you would like to turn into a business?

This three-part workshop series is designed to help early-stage ventures understand the Lean Startup approach and learn ways to start collecting feedback from potential customers.

The tools and frameworks covered in the workshop will help you to lower the risk associated with launching your new product or business.

Our approach will also help new ventures to better understand how sales and marketing activities can be organized to land the first customers.
