Event Description

Is your business or social enterprise idea ready for development and validation? If so, then this series of workshops and guidance through our entrepreneurial resources is for you.

By the end of the week, you will have:

  • Engaged in a series of workshops to define your business idea, understand basic startup principles and worked through the lean startup methodology with your idea
  • Learned how to use some essential tools and canvases such as SimVenture Validate and the Value Proposition Canvas
  • Helped your peers to develop their ideas and received help yourself
  • Become more integrated into our entrepreneurial community
  • Developed your idea into a pitch, pitched to your peers and given and received essential feedback

We expect this to be a commitment of at least 8 hours over the course of the week, with optional activities incorporated.

Sign up to any of these workshops and you will be added to the series. Those who attend all four workshops in the series and deliver their pitch successfully will receive a certificate of achievement.


You will get the chance to hear real-world examples, get advice from expert guest speakers and get feedback directly from our team and your peers. You will learn how to test the assumptions you are making, prepare to do customer discovery and get guidance on developing a prototype. You will be onboarded to aspects of our Enterprise Toolkit and taught how to use these essential tools to develop your business idea. We finish the series with pitch training and practice and will create a plan of action for next steps.

You will be sent links to attend each individual session on Blackboard Collaborate.
