Stop dreaming, start doing: 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 ideas (made up is fine, a real one is better!) that you'd like to explore on the day. 

What you'll learn:

  • How to start with user needs and problems, not solutions
  • The value of creating simple user personas and stories
