It's been a number of months since we have held a meeting. We're going to try a different format for this session, that will involve volunteers from the group who, prior to the meeting, have created a business model canvas and run one or more "Lean startup style" experiments against it. They'll present their findings, and then we'll break into small groups to help them analyze and optimize.
We need volunteers to present a business model and conduct an experiment.
Here's what were going to do on Oct 28:
• The meeting will start with a short review of how to use the business model canvas to conduct customer discovery and validation. We'll keep this really simple - 10 minutes, as just a primer.
• Then we're going to have three people present their canvases to the group, and discuss the experiments they ran and the results they found. Each presenter will get no more than five minutes to present their business, their assumptions, their experiment, and the results.
• Then we're going to break out into our workshops. Each workshop group will choose one of the businesses that was presented, and evaluate how the results of their experiment impact the business model, and what additional experiments should be run over the course of the next month. Groups will give their feedback directly to the presenters. Depending on the number of people we have, we may have multiple breakout groups per canvas.
• Finally, we'll take volunteers to present at the next meeting, and maybe the group will vote on the ones they are most excited about.
Let us know if you'd like to volunteer!
See you there!
