How to Validate Your Business Idea

Oki Tåg, #digirockstars

Is my idea good enough?
Should I quit my job and launch a startup?
Looking for your first customers?

Does any of the above sound familiar? Then it’s time to start validating!

We show you how to start identifying your potential customers and teach you how to test if they will buy your product, for how much and why.

90% of startups fail. Why? Because they start building products without knowing the above information. You will leave the workshop with an understanding of the basics of Lean Startup and you will be ready to conduct your first experiment.

Thu 10 Oct, 2 PM – 3 PM:
Agile Startup Board

Teemu Polo, NewCo Helsinki

This workshop guides you how to make your board a strategic asset. A great board can help a startup avoid disasters and navigate the hardships of growth.

Let’s build simple yet functional governance, no unnecessary bureaucracy!

There’s a limited seat capacity to the workshops, so be quick and register now!

We reserve the right to changes.

Don’t forget that we also provide you the chance to use the Brella matchmaking tool for 1-to-1 meetings during the event at Maria 01!
