Lightening lean startup: How to take your idea from lightbulb to launch
How do you take an idea from that eureka moment to a fully working product and scalable web business? This is a hands-on, fast paced workshop which introduces the principles behind lean startup. You'll learn how to go from Plan A to a Plan that works. Numbers are limited (12 attendees max) so get in there quick. We ask that all attendees come with a startup idea (made up is fine, a real one is better!) that you'd like to explore on the day.
What you'll learn:
- Why passion & purpose are important
- How to start with user needs and problems, not solutions
- The value of creating simple user personas and stories
- How to conduct effective customer interviews
- A practical introduction to the lean canvas (your 1 page business plan)
- Different ways to validate your idea
- How to define your minimum viable product
This session will be run by the founders of Spook Studio (a startup consultancy & innovation studio) – Laurence McCahill (design lead) and Carlos Saba (technical lead).
