@Newman University in november 2017

A brain for business How to create winning ideas with Mike Bandar

Date: Tuesday 14th November 2017

Time: 9am – 12pm

An idea is simply a clash between an opportunity and a solution, the real art is spotting the right idea for you and ensuring it can grow into a viable business. This workshop will equip you to spot the opportunities and ideas around you, as well as the knowledge and skills to assess whether your idea, new or old, has what it takes to make a real business.

Use the workshop to develop your Enterprise Challenge Drinks Mat entry (and post at reception by 30 November)                                 

A powerful way to test your business ideas with Will Pritchard from Uncaged Ventures

Date: Tuesday 28th November 2017

Time: 9am – 12pm

In the lean start-up, the goal is to minimise the time it takes to cycle through the build-measure-learn loop. The focus should not be on building the perfect product, but on building something basic and then improving it based on customer feedback. The Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is a key part of that loop. This session will give you the knowledge to start building your very own MVP.
