Business Model 101

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll use our favourite tool to map out nine key considerations for your business, product or project idea. By the end of the session, you’ll have clear next steps on how to move your idea forward.

Some of the topics we’ll cover include:

  • Who your customer is and how to reach them

  • Different sales models and pricing

  • How to define your unique value

How does the session help you go from idea to a plan?

If you’re just getting started, the Lean Canvas is the perfect tool to structure your thinking and challenge yourself to think in a new way about your idea. Once you have all your thoughts on paper, the final step is to set priorities to gather real facts on each section before you invest too much time or resources.

How does the session help if you already have a business or product?

If you already have a product or a business, the Lean Canvas is a great tool to reimagine the possibilities of success using a proven startup methodology. Maybe you want to go after a new customer or are considering a pricing change, the one-page tool isolates the opportunity and gives you space and structure to make an exciting change based on facts!

Startup 101: Metrics suck; let's make it easy

When you're selling a product, it's easy to rely on metrics like leads, revenue, and conversion as benchmarks of your success or failure. These metrics are essential but can be challenging to gather and use as you make daily business decisions. In this 101 session, Tiffany Linke-Boyko will introduce you to NPS, Net Promoter Score. The NPS format asks your customers a single question, in near real-time, and distills their feedback into a score that measures customer retention and advocacy, quantifies customer loyalty, and can be used as a leading indicator of growth for your business.
