Business Model Canvas (BMC) - BMC is one tool that people can use to help bring clarity to “How will we make money?” Ideas are fun to talk about, but even the best ideas will fail if they are not sustainable businesses. We will be going over how can Startups best use BMC. Learn what each part covers.

Ideation & Market Validation - Why is Validation important to you? This workshop will help you quickly tackle a startup idea from the “hope” stage through ideation, and how to achieve market validation. We will be using Customer Development approaches by Steve Blank to talk about Validation.

Effective Pitching - “Investors don’t invest in business. They invest in stories about business”. The act of convincing others to do something with your ideas is called ‘pitch’. Learn how to convince others that your idea is amazing.

Design Thinking - It’s a mindset of combining creative and analytical thinking and applying it toward solving a specific problem. Therefore, design thinking will involve your team to continually challenge yourself to be creative and innovative.

Who should attend?

  • Students of all backgrounds interested in entrepreneurship
  • Aspiring entrepreneurs
