About the event
During this online StartupTalk, we’ll cover in detail how you can validate your business idea. We’ll talk scope, who to involve, which tools to use, how much to invest in it, and what testing and feedback levels you should aim for.
You’ve got a great idea – now what? 💡
We know that being at the foot of the mountain can be quite overwhelming. We also know from hundreds of founders that there are some great approaches (and some less great), in order to overcome the barriers, kickstart the business and turn your idea into something that really works. It all starts with validating your awesome idea.
But how exactly do you figure out whether there is a market for it, without spending months and years on research – when all you want is getting started on your business?
It can be quite tempting to skip the profound validation stage of your idea. But did you know that the 5-year survival rate for Danish startups is only 36%? Yep, and that’s basically the lowest score in the entire European Union 👎
Fast forward a couple of years: No one wants to spend valuable time, hard-earned cash, and the frustration and stress that comes with being a business owner, only to discover that the idea you had didn’t even have legs to start with.
Because this step is so important, now and in the future, we’re dedicating one whole hour to help you through this task. The best part? The better validation you do today, the more likely you are to not only survive, but also to convince investors later.
