Description

UCL Short Course in Entrepreneurship - Lean Startup

Date: Tuesday 24th October

Venue: UCL BASE KX

Time: 2pm – 5pm


Who should attend

This workshop is open to all Students and Staff at UCL who are interested in building a startup and want to learn how to use the Lean Canvas.

About the workshop

In an environment of extreme uncertainty, an approach is needed that thrives in the unknown rather than gets derailed by it. And there are few environments more uncertain than that of a startup.

The Lean Startup is an approach that is designed for the ever changing landscape that faces a startup. Created in 2011, it is a methodology that is built to deal with extreme uncertainty and it has already been used by many of the most high profile startups, including Dropbox and Airbnb.

At it’s centre is the Lean Canvas. The Lean Canvas is a business plan on a page. It allows you to detail all the aspects of your business, as you would do in a business plan, but do it in an hour. This allows you to quickly map out your entire business, so you can identify the riskiest elements, and tackle those first.

The session will introduce you to the Lean Startup and its principle concepts. We will then move onto the Lean Canvas and you will be asked to put your own business through the canvas. We will finish by reviewing your canvas to identify the riskiest part of your business.

What you will get out of it:

  • An understanding of core principle of the Lean Startup
  • A completed Lean Canvas for your own startup idea
  • An action plan for how to progress over the next week, month and quarter
  • A powerful tool that you will use forever more to help you build a successful start up
