How do we know that our business ideas are going to create the positive change we want to see in the world? Or that our ideas have a chance of becoming a thriving business that serves our community?

In an environment where the majority of new businesses fail, lean principles aim to give small businesses a better chance of success by helping entrepreneurs learn more quickly what works and discard what doesn’t. As a small business owner, you can use lean practices to test, validate, and adapt your vision, shorten your business development cycle, and measure progress and gain valuable feedback on your products and services.

In this one-day intensive, you will receive valuable training, resources and support to apply lean startup principles and tools in starting a business with positive social, environmental and economic impact. Through a combination of discussions and hands-on activities, you will:

- Learn the build-measure-learn approach that characterizes lean methodology
- Develop hypotheses regarding your business idea and the problem it is solving
- Learn how to test your business idea with potential stakeholders
- Gain a “lean mindset” for building a thriving social enterprise

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who wants to try out lean methodologies to start a new business.

Location: Impact Hub SF
