Three steps to launch your dream project
Learn to use new methods
The first step is the most crucial one. It is about understanding your market and your user through field observation and meetings with your users and market players
Example of workshops: Design thinking method and user and market observation, how to stand out from your competitors, moving from observation to value proposition
Bring your idea to life
The second step is dedicated to the creation of your concept. It is about adapting it according to the problematic you have identified in the field
Example of workshops: Stand out thanks to creativity, go from the idea to the business model in record time, master the art of the elevator pitch, understand the lean startup
Launch your project with peace of mind
The third step is to get your concept validated by your target. Go back to the field to propose your concept and measure the traction and user feedback.
Example of workshops: How to find your first customers, how to build your first MVP, introduction to growth hacking
