Market Validation, Part 2: How do founders discover and overcome fatal flaws?

As a founder either starting out with your idea or grinding away for months, if you’re unsure whether your startup idea suffers from a fatal flaw, this workshop will show you the steps to overcome fatal flaws in your business assumptions, demonstrate the workflow to make incremental progress based on customer feedback, and guidance to take corrective action when appropriate.

By applying a framework approach to quickly identify fatal flaws with your startup, you’ll overcome obstacles to build a thriving startup or avoid wasting time and money by confidently pivoting from a flawed idea.

During this hand’s-on FREE workshop, we’ll understand the approach to analyze the results from each of the 5 assumption validation activities, explore the process to discover which fatal flaws apply to your startup idea – if any, examine the methodology to develop workarounds to overcome one-or-more fatal flaws, identify the techniques to implement corrective actions to your business assumptions, and discuss the monitoring tools used to determine whether your fixes are working.
