Startup U: Validating Your Business
Tuesday, July 26, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Often times, it's exciting to have a great idea and consider launching it as a brand new business. After all, who doesn't want to enjoy the benefits of earning unlimited income and being lauded by newspapers and magazines as the best and brightest new entrepreneur?
But wait a minute...should you even take the leap and launch this business? How do you know for sure whether you or the idea is ready for that?
Join Startup Lakewood's Director of Ideation, Mike Belsito, as he has a conversation with Joe Haddad and Nick Dadas, Co-Founders of University Tees, a Lakewood business, to discuss the idea of valdiating your business. In this conversation, we'll discuss topics such as:
- How to know when to launch your business.
- Simple and inexpensive steps you can take to validate your business concept.
- Tools that can help you validate your business concept.
Also, Finalists for the Lakewood Ideation Challenge will be introduced and will give their elevator pitches to the live audience, with winners to be named in August.
As always, Startup U events are FREE and open to the public.
