Learn from Former Founding Engineer at Mint, Founder of BizeeBee and Femgineer: Poornima Vijayashanker

Poornima Vijayashanker Poornima was the inital engineer at Mint.com and was pinnacle in building out the product from scratch that eventually lead to the acquisition for $170M by Intuit. She decided to leave Mint and launch her own startup, BizeeBee, helping membership based businesses across the world grow their business. Recently she was awarded Inc Magazine's 10 Women to Watch in Tech in 2013.

Will It Launch?

There is a misconception that to be a startup you need to have a team that can build a full product. And only when the product is built can you attract customers and convince them to pay! But this approach takes a lot of time, and an abundance of resources that are unavailable to most entrepreneurs.

In this workshop, Poornima will share strategies for brainstorming, validating your idea, launching it, and even attracting early adopters who are willing to pay, as a scrappy startup.

Poornima will also guide you through a series of hands-on exercises. You'll leave learning what you need to focus on to bring your idea to market, how to reach out to early adopters, understand what they're willing to pay for, and build your initial prototype with or without a team.

    A friend of mine is hosting this event. This will be a great way to learn about validating an idea from a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who has successfully raised millions of dollars from VCs and had a multi-million dollar exit.
