Why attend?

From personal experience, I know how hard it is to get started in business - you have lots of ideas, but they are just not turning into viable business ideas. On top of that when you attend courses or networks, it is often assumed you have all the answers to the important questions like "What's your business", “Who are your customers?”, “What is the market size?” without providing an approach to getting these. Design thinking is a non-linear, iterative process which seeks to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions to prototype and test. By combining my academic background in Design Innovation and 20 years industry experience, I have researched and created “Yes to the Startup” workshops and training courses targeted at aspiring entrepreneurs.
