Event Details

This free half-day workshop explores the process of taking new ideas to market and aimed at businesses looking to grow through their ideas

About this Event

Running a business is time consuming; and it can often mean that creating new products or services can end up at the bottom of the to-do list. Without a method of evaluating new ideas, it can be difficult to know where to start, let alone grow. However, being busy is not an excuse for when clients disappear.

The Commercialisation & Growth workshop explores the process of taking new ideas to market, from idea through to execution and is contextualised by real-world situations. It is aimed at businesses looking to grow by turning their ideas into new products or services – or extend their existing ones. At the end of the workshop, attendees should have a better understanding of the practical tools and techniques needed for commercialisation.

Some of the key topics addressed in the Commercialisation & Growth workshop are:

  • Commercialisation: designing products & pathways that suit your business
  • Intellectual Property: creating and protecting your ideas
  • Prototyping: Market validation and testing techniques
  • Business Models: Increasing the value of your business
  • Value Proposition: How to make your business attractive to customers
