Lean Canvas for your business idea: find & review

You want to start your own business? You want to found your own company, your own start-up? Then you need a good business idea! Several times a year we have a very special workshop, with over 200 participants. Briefly explained, similar to Höhle der Löwen that you know from TV. Only, with the extra of a day of coaching with our experts and mentors, then comes the big day and day pitches. 200 people, 40 groups, 40 ideas, but what’s the best way to start?

What is the Lean Canvas?

What is the Lean Canvas? The Lean Canvas is a variation of the Business Canvas. It helps you to find business ideas in new simple steps and to validate them. Validation means to check and prove that a business idea is or will be profitable. In this special of our Marketing Podcast, we’re going to look at the Lean Canvas in three episodes. In each case, 3 of 9 steps.

In part 1, you’ll learn about problem, solution, and your USP. In the second part(Lean Canvas #2) we talk about metrics, target groups and the unfair advantage. Part 3(Lean Canvas #3) then deals with the big topic of marketing and the resulting costs and revenue sources.

Banks, investors… Find employees (Recruiting)

In the Marketing Podcast and this special you learn so, free of charge the first step, the design of your business idea! You need this to develop your pitch and your business plan. Both you need to convince e.g. investors and banks of you. Finally, you need both concepts in everyday life, e.g. when you want to convince customers of your product or when recruiting new employees. These steps will be discussed in detail in future episodes. Learn marketing for your own business, step by step.

A solid, well thought-out idea, demonstrably profitable is what employees, banks but also investors expect from you as a founder. That’s why we wanted to take a close look at each individual step in this Lean Canvas Special, with practical examples so that you understand how such a Lean Canvas is built up. What depth you need to go into so that your pitch is ultimately convincing.
