Wed, Feb 22, 2017, 5:00 PM – Sat, Jul 22, 2017, 12:00 PM PST
Our 3-Day Immersion Program is residential. Located in the wooded hills of Silicon Valley, Women’s Startup Lab offers the perfect environment to focus, connect, and inspire. Research shows complete immersion allows breakthroughs, design thinking and innovation. With your peers, we bring the network and experts to you. For 3 full days, experts, coaches and advisors will be working with you on your ideas, challenges and growth opportunities.
This is for the founders who are in the idea stage of their companies.
- Do you have a startup idea?
- Not sure how to test your idea and bring a product to market?
- If the product idea is good, where do I start?
This 3-day immersion program focuses on the process of taking an idea to make it into a company.
We offer a 360-degree assessment of you and your idea, bringing in the experts to shore up the skills needed, the coaching to expand your thinking, and the network and advisors to strengthen your value proposition. These 3-days will set you on a course for success.
First, we start with Big Picture Thinking. Think your idea is good enough? We will make it better. This is the divergent work: thinking bigger, having impact and being inspired by new spaces. This Design Thinking Methodology was created by design firms like IDEO and used in innovation labs and Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies.
Next: customer validation cycle, market fit, and personas. This is the convergent work, the brass tacks. We work on how to gather, analyze and incorporate data back into the process strengthening the product, the proposition and the organization.
Then we set your company up for success. We walk through the Lean Startup Methodology, and the options available on how to structure and formalize your startup. We set you on a 30-day plan to reach your specific startup goals.
Most importantly, we focus on you as the founder. What does it take to start a company? Do you have what it takes? What do you need to do to get ready? You will work with a professional coach who can help you successfully navigate the leadership and management skills necessary to grow your startup, and your personal development together.
