Create or Pivot: Activate Your Business Model – Online Business Skills Workshop

By Aug 26,2020 August 25th, 2020 No Comments

Wednesday, 26 August – 4pm via Zoom

Get help to activate your idea or pivot your business using the Lean Canvas while being supported by Sourdough Experts and Mentors.

Is now the time to create that business you’ve been thinking about?

Or evaluate whether you should pivot your existing business model?

This workshop is designed to support you to use the Lean Canvas to activate your idea and/or pivot your business model amidst our ever-changing pandemic environment.Whether you’ve had to close down, are making it through or are relying on Jobkeeper to keep afloat, this is the opportunity to work strategically on your business, rather than in it, with support from Sourdough experts and mentors.

During the session we will be working through the Lean Business Model Canvas – a one-page tool (developed by Ash Maruya) that helps you critically think about what you need to launch your idea, or to pivot and develop your new offering within your existing business. We’ve also refined it to be purpose-driven and to prompt circular economy principles and design thinking, to assist us to build regenerative businesses that we need to serve our communities, something that has been really highlighted through this pandemic period.

You’ll have the opportunity to test and workshop your ideas with other participants as well as the facilitators, and be able to walk away with tangible next steps to activate your idea or pivot your business. If you don’t have an idea or a business but are thinking about taking the leap, come along too! The Lean Business Model Canvas is a great tool to help you develop your ideas down the track.

We’ll also be sharing more information on StartUp Northern Rivers – a Sourdough Pre-Accelerator Program for purposeful business. It’s an 8 week immersive program which gives you the tools and skills to turn your business idea into reality.
