Stop dreaming, start doing: how to go from a startup idea to a plan that works

A session at Stop dreaming, start doing: How to go from a startup idea to a plan that works

Tuesday 23rd April, 2013

6:30pm to 8:30pm (GMT)

We come across a lot of people with a startup idea (or two) that really struggle with knowing what to do next to put their ideas into action. For this next meetup, we'll be showing you how to get your idea onto paper, by introducing the Lean Canvas, your one page business plan. As you may know by now our purpose at the School is to 'help dreamers do' so this is a great opportunity to learn how we help entrepreneurs realise their vision on a day-to-day basis.

The canvas should be your starting point for any new idea. It allows startups to ditch their 50 page business plans, forming innovative, loose validations & core assumptions to build a business around one page. More info here

This session will be run by Laurence & Carlos, founders of the Happy Startup School and Spook Studio.

We'll also be setting homework tasks (eek!) for the group to get you started on the road to going solo (as well as checking in on those attendees from our last event that were set goals by the lovely Julia!). We're keen to get you all to move from lots of talking to lots of doing! Getting started is the hard part for any new venture so the sooner you start, the quicker you'll get on the road to finding more meaning through entrepreneurship.

Come along with your business idea and we'll help one another stop dreaming and start doing. Hope to see you all there!
