FOUR STAGES OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
The upcoming workshop, Examine Your Idea, is focused on stage one, Ideate / Innovate and the workshop’s objective is to affirm what we know, and what we still need to learn about it.
During the 90 minutes we will use, and learn to use it again, a template to explore the five key ingredients to an idea. And though they may seem logical, if this is your first business idea, they fall into the category of “I don’t know what I don’t know”.
