Customer Development is the next step in the Lean Startup Methodology, after Business Modelling.

Developed by serial entrepreneur Steve Blank, Customer Development is the practice of gaining customer insights to generate, test, and optimize ideas for products and services through interviews and structured experiments. Customer development is used to help build products and services that customers want and avoid spending time and money on products or servies that customers don’t want.

This workshop will help you to identify your customers problems and test ideas to optimize them. You will be able to learn some of the tools and skills needed to get valuable information from potential customers so you can set up your business for success.
