Do you have a tech innovation burning a hole in your pocket and you want to unleash it into the world but just not sure how? Whether you have been working away at it for a while or it is fresh and sparkly and keeping you awake at night you should seriously consider taking the day out to attend this smashing workshop to be able to take your idea to MVP. This is especially for you if you have no idea what MVP means!
MVP = minimum viable product and it is the difference between
a) working away for months or years trying to perfect your solution only to release it to the world after spending loads of time, money (or both) to find you have a great product but nobody cares enough to pay for it
or b) quickly identifying what is your key problem you are trying to solve for your customers, developing a prototype that people can play with, use and give you instant valuable feedback so you can quickly modify your solution to fit the customer’s real needs at the minimum cost.
Which sounds better to you? If you choose b) then quick register now for your opportunity to be part of this hands on workshop with Aaron Birkby, Entrepreneur in Residence with Steve Baxter’s River City Labs.
This workshop is brought to you as part of the 2016 Telstra Business Centre Coffs Harbour Digital Innovation Challenge which is now open for entries from innovators across the Coffs Coast (Nambucca, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour). Spaces are limited and preference will be given to entrants in the Challenge.
