Lean Business Startup and Innovation
Building a business is hard work. When you start the journey of becoming an entrepreneur and make the decision to build something from nothing, at first the excitement of doing something new can lead you to make poor choices. The life of an entrepreneur is not easy. Looking from the outside you may think it is so much fun to be in charge, but the reality is that you are in charge and responsible for the business success.
People often come up with business ideas that may appear to be a can’t miss opportunity, however, they are just hypothesizing without evidence that the business idea will actually work. Don’t get discouraged! This course is designed to help you verify that your business idea will attract paying customers. If your business idea does not attract prospects to buy your product or services, STOP and change directions!

You will use the Lean Business Canvas to describe your business opportunity and identify paying customers to help you and your business thrive. You will have the opportunity to interview prospects (potentials customers) about their interest in your products or services. Don’t get discouraged or impatient with this process, it will save you lots of money and time. Trust me, you will reflect and say, I am glad that I used the Lean Business Canvas to describe my business opportunity and identify paying customers to help my business thrive.
