We invite our participants to pitch their ideas to everyone (fire-pitch). After all pitches are made, we follow up by having an informal and fun discussion to co-create the DNA of startups together!"
Making our businesses more Human
Why do we co-create new ideas? We know of so many entrepreneurs who have started their businesses for reasons other than money. What helped them kickstart their startups was a platform to share their ideas and collaborate with others! Well, that's what New Idea Club is for.
Happy Startup Canvas : Special Guest!
Starting last month, we introduced a new feature to our event; namely the "Happy Startup Canvas". This month now, we are thrilled to welcome a special guest to our event, Laurence McCahill, co-founder of the Happy Startup School and very own designer of the Happy Startup Canvas!
This unique business model canvas is designed be a starting point for creating the DNA of your organisation. It is not meant to replace the business model canvas (or the lean canvas), but rather a way to pin down who you are and what you stand for to create a value-driven and purposeful business.
Curious to know more? Well, the event will begin with an introduction to the canvas from the man, Laurence McCahill himself. All participants are then free to share & pitch their ideas (no matter how vague or concrete) using the Happy Startup Canvas. We will then open the canvases to the entire group, allowing for further discussion and ideas to be developed around your Canvas!
So! Whether you have an idea of your own, or are just simply interested in collaboration and all kinds of new projects, come along to New Idea Club and join the fun!
This event will be held at Fairly Square, London's first fair trade bar & café.
