This training is open and methods used are relevant to all for-profit, non-profit, and community organizations. Great for small business owners and managers.

Learn to dig into details of your business to identify what you can do to take control in the success of your business.

During the four-week course participants will:

  • Develop a Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition to differentiate your business
  • Discover product/service needs by determining customer problems and solutions
  • Test your product/service ideas through customer interviews to determine viability
