The Lean Start-Up - a method for developing businesses and products.
Wed 12 October 2016, 15:30 – 17:00 BST
Too many aspiring entrepreneurs pursue their product/service idea without getting any feedback from prospective customers, causing the start-up to fail. This workshop will show you how to use the ‘Lean Start-up’ method to get around this problem, and shorten your product development cycles.
In this workshop, Dimitrios Dousios will provide you with a platform for starting small, as well as providing the necessary practical tools to grow.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a gentle introduction to the Lean Start-up concept. The Lean Start-up is a method for developing businesses and products using a feedback loop process which shortens product development cycles. This adopts a combination of business hypothesis-driven experimentation, iterative product releases and validated learning.
The lean philosophy applies to any individual, team or company looking to introduce new products or services into the market.

- Minimum Viable Product

- Spilt Testing
- Actionable Metrics
- Innovation Accounting
Who is this workshop for?
- Students who have a business idea that may need funding
