Startup Club Sheffield
Friday, 3 August 2012 from 18:30 to 20:30
Sheffield, United Kingdom
Building startups together, from the ground up.
This session: Minimum Viable Product.
A look at the minimum viable products, using some of our local startups as examples. How a startup idea was pared down to the essentials, how the product was validated and the MVP has iterated into its latest incarnation.
Doors open at 6pm for registration, drinks, pre-meeting chat. We'll kick off from about 6.30pm. We'll wrap up by 8.30pm and head onwards to a nearby pub for a sociable drink to explore ideas with other collaborators.
Startup Club is a regular meetup for web and tech entrepreneurs who want to build their product startups.
We gather a couple of times a month to talk about the business of startups, from product development to funding, from the marketing to the technology, from business models to customers, from strategy to exit.
We are open to anyone who is passionate about startups, whether you’re a serial or aspiring entrepreneur, an enterprising student or you’re trying to bootstrap your product in between working for The Man and doing the school run. You may be running an early-stage startup, be almost investor-ready or even just have an idea waiting to be executed.
We’re not here to just network. We’re about building new businesses and developing the startup culture and community around Sheffield. We encourage you to choose your level of involvement:
- sharing experiences from your own startup journey
- collaborating with other founders
- providing legal, financial and business planning insight
- being a mentor
- helping to run the Startup Club
It’s free to take part. Register above and be sure to bring an interested friend or fellow founder.
