Business Model Innovation and Lean Experimentation Workshop

Special Event
Theater 6–8pm
  • Regular $50
  • Media Center Members $35

Want to launch a new product, service, or business model? Ever thought why are startups more agile than large corporates? Heard of "lean startup", but do not know what it is? 

Join David Dabscheck, CEO of GIANT Innovation, for a 2-hour, highly interactive workshop to learn the basics of lean startup methodology and business model innovation to allow you to bring new products, services, and business models to market rapidly and more successfully. 

Together, we’ll go through a number of examples to show how market leaders have built strong models and how you can too. We’ll learn how to adopt Lean Startup principles to outline, test and refine your business model, including how to design lean experiments to more quickly launch. With this workshop, you will understand the process for how startups turn a great concept into an even greater commercial success.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Learn what is meant by lean startup methodology and business model innovation and understanding the assumptions that lay beneath any new concept.   
  • Create a business model of key assumptions that need to be true for your business concept to succeed.  
  • Design a lean experiment to test an assumption underneath your business model. 
  • Collaborate and receive feedback from other course participants about their business concepts.
