About the Innovation Workout

Do you want to position your start-up for R&D funding and growth?

This two-day interactive course will guide you to reflect and identify patterns for growth within and outside of your business.

It will enable you to explain and understand your business model, value proposition and the next steps to test its validity. The workout is based on the well-established Stategyzer tools and techniques.

You will be supported by a team of highly experienced mentors with backgrounds in digital innovation and telecommunications, considering the unique challenges and opportunities within the sector.

Across the two days, you will learn to pitch, practice with peers, and present in front of a panel. The benefit of the workouts being delivered as a group means that participants will also have an opportunity to network and receive peer feedback.
