Description

Coming up with startup ideas can be hard, but validating those ideas can be even harder.

When you’re starting out as an early-stage tech founder, taking the time to validate your business idea and business model is critical for company success and sustainability

Learn how to confidently determine if your business idea is worth pursuing at RIC Centre's Startup Validation workshop.

This workshop is ideal for you if:

  • Need help figuring out where to focus your time and energy when first starting out

  • Want to use data to confidently answer the question “will customers really buy my product if I build it?”

  • Want to uncover valuable insights and ‘hidden customer problems’ to help you design a product customers can’t wait to buy

  • Need help figuring out who your first customers should be

  • Want to reduce the chance of failure and financial loss through smart validation techniques

  • Want to learn how to pivot your strategy and jumpstart your sales

After attending this event, you'll have:

  • Practical techniques you can use to interview potential customers

  • An impactful ‘value proposition statement’ for your business – explains your business clearly to anyone in under 30 seconds

  • Efficient tools to help you build your business model and plan

  • Key metrics to track the health of your business
