- 8 February 2020

WHAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE FROM PARTICIPATION:
You will be able to work out whether your business idea is feasible, and what will make your business viable.
These workshops will assist aspiring women entrepreneurs to better articulate their wants, understand their areas of strength and weakness relating to running a business, and build confidence about the next steps that need to be taken to start a business.
After attending the Spark Your Startup training workshops, candidates will be invited to the LaunchLab Build programme.
The Build Programme utilises the widely used Strategyzer platform to help startup founders design a value proposition and business model while they develop a minimum viable product (MVP) and gain their first customers. We work with entrepreneurs to determine the purpose of the business and iterate through a customer validation process by getting real customer feedback, validating the value proposition in the market, and developing an MVP to demo. We help entrepreneurs determine if the product is feasible to produce and sell.
Build Programme dates: March 2020 – May 2020
