Online Startup Idea Fest: Build and Share Ideas with Potential Customers

To form great startup ideas, it is absolutely critical to share your ideas and get feedback from people in your target market. However, in our current COVID-19 reality, this basic "customer development" can be challenging to execute. To help, we are hosting an "Online Startup Idea Fest" - an interactive online conference that starts with a short presentation on the best practices for forming and validating business ideas, followed by a long networking session where you can share your startup ideas for feedback with other attendees. You will also have the opportunity to give feedback on ideas and meet other people interested in your space.

Join us for what promises to be a fun event!
