Look Before You Leap: Put Your Entrepreneurial Idea to the Test @ EDGE Hub, Room B290 - Sheridan HMC
Feb 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

You think you have a good business or social enterprise idea, but how can you be sure? Before you spend time and money developing a product or service, learn how to test your idea and build on a solid foundation.

This Explore Lab will help you:

  • Clarify the problem you want to solve and why it is important.
  • Understand how to define and effectively articulate what makes your product or service stand out.
  • Explore tools and processes to test your value proposition with potential or existing customers.

Join EDGE mentors and fellow aspiring entrepreneurs to get feedback on your work and have your questions answered. You’ll also be able to network, make connections and brainstorm with like-minded colleagues on how to turn your ideas into action.

This lab involves pre-session work that we’ll send your way once you register.

About this Event

People sometimes think a business idea has to arrive like a lightning bolt of brilliance. In reality, generating entrepreneurial ideas is a skill that can be learned. Business or social enterprise ideas come from people who are passionate about a topic, who notice challenges and opportunities in everyday life, and who identify a need in the market or society. You have many great ideas just waiting to be born!

If you’re curious to learn more about entrepreneurship and find an idea you might run with, this workshop is for you! If you’ve had an idea for a while, this is a chance to develop it further.

Through the workshop you will:

  • Discover tools and processes to generate groundbreaking ideas
  • Understand what makes a solid business or social enterprise idea
  • Learn how EDGE can help you turn your idea into a business
  • Have fun and meet like-minded people

This workshop is for those in EDGE’s Explore program as well as Sheridan students and the general public.
