Get Started Workshop

This fun and immediately useful, three-hour, hands-on workshop is designed to “kickstart” those who have a business idea or “jumpstart” those who would like to grow and expand their business through a new product and or service. Whether you’re just getting started, stuck on a particular issue, or in need of a refresher, this workshop will provide the fuel needed to get you moving. This workshop is a low-commitment opportunity to understand what’s driving you, explore your idea through the CO.STARTERS Canvas, and refine your model by learning ways to get meaningful customer feedback and start pursuing your idea today. You’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate with other members of the community and make valuable connections to help you along the way.

  1. Explore Your Idea
    Learn how the CO.STARTERS Canvas can help get ideas out of your head into a format that can be refined over time. Dive deep into understanding your customers.
  2. Refine Your Model
    Once ideas are mapped out on your Canvas, learn how to use customer feedback to refine them. Y0u’ll learn how to start small in order to get in front of customers sooner and begin testing their ideas.
  3. Define Next Steps
    As the workshop concludes, you will come up with actionable steps that can be taken in the next hour, day, week, and month to move your ideas forward.
