About this event

Do you have a great social innovation idea, but you’re not quite sure what to do next? In this interactive presentation, we'll discuss the first things to do when you have an idea for a social enterprise. If you feel stuck or unsure where to start, this is the presentation for you! We'll discuss classic lean startup methodology (build, measure, learn, repeat) and the value proposition canvas so you can refer to these tools and always know what next action to take to make your idea a reality.
