MORE ABOUT THE SUMMER INNOVATION SPRINT 

The main idea of the program is to guide you and give you tools to continue working on your business idea.

We will work with the lean methodology, which is used to turn proposed solutions into business models, underpinned by assumptions that are rapidly tested with actual customers to separate truth from fiction, learn and iterate toward product-market fit.

We will use Slack as the communication platform for assignments and submissions and share all the recorded workshops and slides for those who want to look at the material again.

It’s up to YOU when you can watch the workshops and do the assignments.

We will use Zoom for workshops and feedback sessions.
