Want to work on new businesss or product ideas? This workshop is for pre hackathon entrepreneurs & early stage startups.
We work on a new topic every month, this means you get to create cool new creative concepts while understanding how the method of lean prototyping works and how it could be applied to your situation.
We will help you understand how to strengthen ideas, get clarity on product proposition and market fit through the method of Lean Prototyping.
It's designed to help early stage entrepreneurs & startups to break out of the fuzzy front end and rapidly develop and evaluate new concepts to decrease the risk of failure at at later stage. *no code, no graphic design*
It's 100% experimentation, a hands on workshop - we will look into how you can quickly generate, assess, enrich, prototype and evaluate ideas before committing further resources and will identify key tools and techniques to think your way through the future.
We will help you to unlock opportunities that lie within a chosen market section, and identify the multiple pivot and product options from an initial concept proposition.
Understanding this methodology of Lean Prototyping will help you have a concrete product proposition to take into a hackathon or to progress into the lean startup/MVP stage.
A mix of methodologys inspire this workshop including design thinking, service design and lean startup.
