The first phase of setting up a business is the ideation stage. This is the stage when you move from idea to concept. An idea is something in your head and the concept is an idea that has moved onto paper.
What is a good idea? How do you choose from the multiple good ideas you have? How do you prevent yourself from continuously starting multiple ideas and not following through? Can your idea become a business?
The ideation workshop will answer those and many other questions. The workshop will also show you how to turn your passion into profit; the difference between users and customers; how to not waste time and money on building things nobody will buy; and the most powerful force in getting things done.
This workshop is presented by StartupCircles.ai and forms part of the StartupCircles series of workshops and masterclasses. StartupCircles.ai is a next-gen networking and mentorship platform for aspiring and early stage entrepreneurs that accelerates and reduces the cost of launching commercially viable businesses.
