About this workshop

In a world of possibilities how do you come up with a startup idea with legs? In this session we will be defining ‘startup’ as “a​ temporary organization used to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.” (Steve Blank’s def.) From that, we will be exploring how you map out the foundations of a great startup idea.

In this 4­ hour intensive workshop you will go through core concepts to all successful startup ideas. You should be looking to create something innovative that stands out in the commercial landscape, ideally by leveraging technology to deliver better outcomes for users and/or consumers.

You will walk away with an actionable plan to validate your idea out in the real, live market to decide if this is that idea that you should go align with.

This workshop is ideal for corporate escapees, consultants, and students who are exploring startup founding as a career path. Really anyone who's considering the jump into startup land.

Takeaways

Students will learn:

  • How to break down your idea into a solution plan vs. your problem statement and set up test to validate (or invalidate each part of these elements)
  • How to define the problem statement that underpins your startup idea
  • How to set up a startup idea validation plan (Assumptions ­> Hypothesis ­> Testing plan ­> Go/No go decision making)
  • Interview tactics for the best research collection outcomes

*Will leave with a workbook of frameworks to go through in more detail.
