Event Details


Dreaming of starting a business? Or are you dreaming of adding a new product or service to your current business? Then this CO.STARTERS GET STARTED workshop is for you!

This immediately useful, hands-on workshop is designed to “kickstart”  a business idea or “jumpstart” current businesses through investigating a new product and or service.

Come to this interactive workshop to:

1. Explore Your Idea

You’ll work on the CO.STARTERS Canvas to help get ideas out of your head into a format that can be easily understood and refined over time. You’ll deep dive into understanding your customers and investigate whether your business idea will make money. You’ll know if your idea is worth pursuing or change it up to something even better!

2. Refine Your Model

Once your ideas are mapped out on your Canvas, you’ll learn how to use customer feedback to refine them. You'll discover how to start small in order to get in front of customers sooner and begin testing your ideas.

3. Define Your Next Steps

As the workshop concludes, you will come up with actionable steps that can be taken in the next hour, day, week, and month to move your ideas forward.

All materials included plus outstanding business facilitators who will work closely with you to help you succeed in business!
