Join the Orlando Regional Chamber for a hands-on, interactive one-day workshop designed to equip you with tools and knowledge to scale current businesses into new markets, evaluate customer segments and develop an organizational culture based on experimentation and growth. 

The methodology is called Business Model Canvas (BMC) which de-risks the assumptions of your business or project in order to increase your chances of success.

During the one-day workshop, you will learn how to:

  • use the Lean Startup BMC methodologies and apply them to current projects or ideas;
  • test assumptions to avoid risk;
  • identify what your customers believe differentiates you;
  • capitalize on your unique advantages to grow and scale; and
  • evaluate new processes and technology that can help you get an edge on competition.

Designed for established companies, this workshop will help: 

  • increase your customer base and rate of growth;
  • learn Lean Startup BMC methodologies and apply them to current projects or ideas;
  • know when to say no to opportunities;
  • leverage what your customers believe differentiates you;
  • capitalize on your unique advantages to grow and scale;
  • increase the speed of trust with your clients;
  • continue to be relevant and of value to established and new customers; and
  • evaluate how and when to implement new technology.

Instead of writing a complex business plan, you will learn how to easily draft your ideas visually and articulate them so anybody can understand the desirability, feasibility and viability of your service, product or program.
