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 Leap Lab will focus on:

  • Clarifying the problem you’re solving and why it matters
  • Understanding how to define and effectively articulate what makes your product or service stand out
  • Exploring tools and processes to help you test your value proposition with potential or existing customers

Come 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.
