Description

Welcome to our new start up undergraduate programme: 'START UP SPRINT' - A series of introductory start-up business workshops for undergraduates studying at Teesside University.

This programme is being delivered by First Face to Face on behalf of Teesside Launchpad.

This fun, lively and engaging programme is designed for those who have an interest in entrepreneurship and who would like to explore ideas and learn how to take them to the next stage. The workshops will provide lots of opportunity to meet some like-minded people, increase confidence and learn transferable employability skills - all great for your CV.

You do not need to have an idea already to attend the workshops.

Workshop Outline:

Workshop 1: 18th April 2.00pm-4.00pm

V0:08 Victoria Building

Start Up Box

Asking anyone to think creatively on the spot is tough, especially in a room full of people you don’t know. This workshop will focus on team building and highlight the simple steps to communicating and developing business ideas.

Workshop 2: 26th April 2.00pm-4.00pm Teesside Launchpad

V0:08 Victoria Building

Business Model Canvassing (BMC)

Pre-startup entrepreneurs often shudder at the thought of writing a 52 page business plan. Especially when the idea is rough, incomplete and hasn’t been tested. The BMC is the perfect tool to get ideas from heads to paper without having to form complex sentences about profit and loss and 3 year strategies!

Workshop 3: 3rd May 2.00pm-4.00pm

The Curve T3:03

Market Research and the ‘Mom Test’

Would you ask your mum what she thought of your business idea? Do you think she would say she didn’t like it if it was going to hurt your feelings? You will get the opportunity to speak to potential customers, test your ideas and use your findings in your final pitch.

Workshop 4: 10th May 4.00pm-6.00pm

The Curve T3:03

Networking and Pitching

How will you develop your business if you don’t have any contacts? In this session you will test out your own elevator pitches based on your personal values. You will explore networking opportunities in your local area and develop your team’s business pitch.

Celebration Event 6-8pm A networking event to celebrate your achievements over the last 4 weeks. You will pitch your idea to the room with the chance to win a prize. Refreshments will be provided.
