Event description
We will take women through 6 workshops to help establish their MVP.

About this Event

Developing the technology solution to show how your company solves a business problem can be a barrier for women and women identified founders. The lack of technical skill to self-develop a minimal viable product (MVP) can delay entry into the market or cost the founder more dollars up front to contract development skills leaving them short of funding to drive other needed activities of early stage start ups. Haltech in partnership with Silicon Halton have created Roadmap to MVP as a way to accelerate through this milestone.


Participant Eligibility

  • Women and Women Identified Founders
  • Best suited for entrepreneurs in idea, discovery and early validation stages


Your registration will be confirmed.
