About this Event

Are you planning to start a new business or project?

Get ready to experience one or more of these three elements: uncertainty, subjectivity and discomfort.

Part of creating a new project or idea is getting out of your comfort zone. It is this grey area that many people mention but few dare to explore! You will be able to learn what no one has taught you about your business and about yourself. This process might feel uncomfortable at times but with the right guidance, mentorship, and tools you will be able to conquer your fears and develop the entrepreneurial mindset to jump start your venture in no time!

In this webinar, you will meet the facilitators of the Startup Challenge program at The Idea Center and learn how to:

  • Seek for certainty about your hypotheses using lean startup methodologies
  • Make decisions based on evidence and analysis of patterns and contradictions
  • Feel comfortable by being uncomfortable and expand your mindset and vision about the world

Dates and Time:

- December 15th at 6:00 P.M.

- January 20th at 12:00 P.M.

- February 16th at 6:00 P.M.
