Lean Startup Workshop: Validating Your Startup
2 Sessions: Date to be determined (2020) / Location: Amsterdam Amstel
19:00 – 22:00
Do you have a business idea, but you don’t exactly know how to start? Or do you have an existing startup but are you’re stuck and need to validate your problem and solution?
Join our Lean Startup Workshop!
During our two evening workshops, you will be provided with all the tools you need to get under the skin of your customer, and use those insights to launch or relaunch your own fully validated startup.
Session 1: Customer Discovery
In the first session, we will look at your customer. The goal is to define your customer, and find their problems and pain-points. This leads to finding the riskiest assumptions to your business.
Session 2: Experimentation
In the experimentation session, we will learn how to design experiments that you can use to test those riskiest assumptions. This with the goal to validate the problem your customer is facing, and to plan your first Minimum-Viable Product (MVP).
