FREE for Startup Tablelands financial members.
StartupTablelands has found that the biggest issue faced by rural startups is testing their minimum valuable product with their potential customer base.
Getting to market through the media, door to door or at mass events is expensive in both direct costs and time.
One of our initiatives is to help members by securing site space at events across the tablelands – members can showcase their own projects, meet their own market and also help ST by talking about how innovative business practices have helped them.
They don’t have site fees to pay and don’t need to be there for the whole day/event. They can simply take on a 4-5h slot and help with the setup/pack down as appropriate.
All you have to do is be a financial member of StartupTablelands (it’s only $50 for the 2017-18 financial year if you sign up before June 30th, 2017 and $100 after that).
Once you become a member fill in our form at showcase.startuptablelands.org/signup and then book a slot at the Atherton Show by simply filling in your company name (same as in the form) in the worksheet here.
Spots at the Atherton show will be open until June 30th on a first come first served basis. Priority will be given to having as many members as possible represented which means that members would only be allowed one session if necessary.
Please contact [email protected] or call 0451 534 563 to discuss this further.
A startup is an organization formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model. So, the goal of your early business is to find a viable business model. The challenge with most entrepreneurs is that they ASSUME that they know (and we all think our ideas are awesome right?!) and go about spending their time, money and energy building something (which can be fun, because it’s a creative outlet), and it’s not until they go to market to sell it that they realise NO ONE WANTS IT or the customer wants it in a different way. No wonder 9 out of 10 startups fail.
By connecting with Startup & Innovation Tablelands, you will learn key skills such as validating assumptions, agile planning, creating minimum viable products, lean startup techniques, you will connect with other like-minded people, you’ll instantly have access to a support network to help you turn your idea into reality and so much more. more …
