Lean Startup – Move Your Idea To Action! 

Got a business idea? Wondering how to test it? Thinking of starting a business but not sure if your idea has legs? Then this is the workshop for you.

Cost of the workshop is $35.00 and you may bring 1 guest for FREE.

The objective of this workshop is to help each workshop participant begin to lay out the parameters of a sustainable and, ideally, scalable business using Lean Startup principles applied under the discipline of the Lean Business Model Canvas.

Participants are encouraged to use this workshop as a focus group, to bring their ideas for their businesses to peers in the workshop in order to test and strengthen them. 

 The workshop systematically helps you identify, answer and align the three most important questions that your idea will face:

  • who is your customer and what is your customer's primary problem(s)
  • what features need to included (and excluded!) in your solution
  • what is fastest path to commercialization.

The Portland SCORE chapter has a record of presenting successful, relevant workshops to actual and aspiring entrepreneurs. Share your idea with others.

Take the first step in moving your idea to action!
