Is there was a way to test the viability of your business idea before going all in? There is. At the heart of all the reasons for product failure is one core reason: We waste needless time, money, and effort building something nobody wants. The Lean Canvas is an actionable and entrepreneurial approach to doing a business plan in a timely way. 

The following will be covered:

  • The difference between a lean business canvas and a business plan
  • You don't need a product to demonstrate traction
  • How to de-construct your big idea
  • How to focus on what's riskiest (versus what's easiest)
  • How to systematically implement your big idea

Please provide information for the 3 items below by Wednesday, November 20. This will help our SCORE presenter look for examples that might relate to some of the businesses represented at the workshop.

  1. What business stage you are in (business idea, pre-start-up, start-up / first year, more than a year in business)?
  2. Non profit or for profit?
  3. Brief description of your business and the value you provide to customers or clients.
