Presented by Kristen Fortune, Innovacorp, and Craig MacMullin, CEED
Acing the application is critical if you want your start-up to compete for resources. We want to help you succeed from the get-go, so Innovacorp is offering this pre-application workshop. Participants will leave the session with a greater understanding of how to: identify their customer, communicate their problem-solution fit, scope their idea within its segment, quantify the market, and conduct initial customer discovery and validation.
