The most challenging part of taking an idea from concept to creation is to start. Startup Weekend overcomes this by immersing participants in an encouraging and inspiring environment so the startup magic can happen!
Our goal is to connect you with entrepreneurial-minded, enthusiastic people for an exciting weekend of big ideas.
COST: $26.62 – $47.12
DURATION: 54 Hours (Fri - Sun)
As an entrepreneur, startup founder or small business owner we can be hard on ourselves. Very hard on ourselves indeed.
In the road to building a successful company, we need to learn to look after ourselves as well as we look after our business.
This session will be valuable for anyone looking to learn how to treat themselves a little more kindly, and learn how this will have a flow on effect to all aspects of your life and business.
So you've had a great business idea ... but you have NO idea what to do next.
In this session, you'll learn:
A) How to identify what problem your business is solving (or if it there is even a problem)
B) How to check if your business idea has legs, ie. are there real customers out there and enough of them that are willing to pay money for your product/service
C) Why these two things are SO important to consider before you start your business
