Lean Startup Masterclass

29-09-2016 09:00 Campus North

Lean Startup Masterclass will help early stage innovators become more successful through learned skills, using accessible & readily available tools and approaches which help “entrepreneurs reduce the cost of developing new products and services by ensuring that they do not waste time and money designing features that customers do not want.” (British Library’s ‘Industry Guide’)

It emphasises the importance of getting customer feedback from the earliest stage of the development process. Many believe that application of Lean Startup principles gives entrepreneurs a better chance of success without needing large amounts of outside funding and the need to develop elaborate business plans.

So – although you may be passionate about your product or service idea, what do you prioritise, and how do you turn your insight into a sustainable business? Happily, you can learn from early-adopters customers, create a business model (rather than a plan), and experiment your way to success.

Lean Startup Masterclass is led by Justin Souter, who has been putting these principles into practice in two startups, a startup accelerator programme, and in his own business. He has also been passing on these insights since 2013 to nearly 150 entrepreneurs, and will be happy to use the tools and process of the Lean Startup framework to empower you to realise your business goals, or ‘pivot’ to a different way to achieve your vision. Book yourself on a business masterclass or a one-to-one coaching session today to explore the benefits of the Lean Startup for yourself.

Spaces at this event are valued at £249 per place, or FREE OF CHARGE for SMEs based in the North East of England, thanks to Generator’s ERDF supported Digital Futures programme*

*County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear

Lean Startup Masterclass is delivered over 2 sessions – Thursdays 22nd AND 29th September, please only register if you can commit to BOTH days.
