What's In A Team? Workshop Building Your Team

The Investment Readiness Canvas (IRC) is a tool to determine if your business is ready for attracting investments. In each masterclass in this program we discuss one or two elements from the IRC. This makes the IRC the thread through this series of masterclasses.

You want to grow your business, or maybe it is already growing. To facilitate this growth you need a good and motivated team around you. Recruitment takes a lot of time and many entrepreneurs start their search too late. This while a good team is paramount to your business’ success.

But what characteristics should new team members have? And what essential skills are you still missing in your team?

During this masterclass growth entrepreneurs share their stories to teach you more about the process, value and success behind building a good team.

 This masterclass is part of our Investment Readiness Canvas series of four masterclasses.

Workshop: Angel Investors - A Startup’s Stairway to Heaven?

The Investment Readiness Canvas (IRC) is a tool to determine if your business is ready for attracting investments. In each masterclass in this program we discuss one or two elements from the IRC. This makes the IRC the thread through this series of masterclasses.

You are talking to different investors, your business plan is ready to go – but does the investor agree? And what is the investor actually looking for exactly? During this masterclass we guide you through the process and we give you the opportunity to talk one-on-one to an experienced investor, so you come prepared when pitching your business idea.

During this masterclass, investor Paul Dankers tells you the do’s and don’ts of talking to informal investors. Paul has led multiple companies in four different countries. With this experience in the bag he switched to an investment fund and his own business.

Where is the money? Workshop Financial Instruments

The Investment Readiness Canvas (IRC) is a tool to determine if your business is ready for attracting investments. In each masterclass in this program we discuss one or two elements from the IRC. This makes the IRC the thread through this series of masterclasses.

In this masterclass we will introduce you to the most recent developments in the regular and alternative finance landscape. Crowdfunding, informal investing and revolving funds are on the rise. This means you have more possibilities and opportunities, but also a less transparent capital market. Where you used to be able to fulfill your financial needs with only one source of funding, nowadays you need multiple funders. This form of finance – also called pizza finance – brings whole new challenges with it.  

This masterclass will help you determine which forms of (alternative) finance are best suited for your business.

This masterclass is part of our Investment Readiness Canvas series of four masterclasses.

Cost: € 25

From napkin to revenue: Market validation workshop

The Investment Readiness Canvas (IRC) is a tool to determine if your business is ready for attracting investments. In each masterclass in this program we discuss one or two elements from the IRC. This makes the IRC the thread through this series of masterclasses.

You have a great idea, but how do you know if it is worth working on? Is their market for your business idea? During this workshop, you will learn how to validate your ideas with the least amount of work required. We teach you how to take your idea and get moving in the right direction quickly and efficiently.

Do you really understand your customer’s needs, pains and gains? And does your product and service relieve their pains enough or even makes them happy? Founders often assume there is a need for their product or service. But this is at the same time one of the riskiest assumptions.

 During this workshop, you will learn how to validate your ideas with the least amount of work required. We teach you how to take your idea and get moving in the right direction quickly and efficiently. We’re going to use the value proposition canvas to get a better understanding of your potential customers and how they value your products or services. We will also dive into effective ways to prototype and validate your ideas.

After joining this masterclass, you will know:

  • How to use the value proposition canvas to systematically improve or design new value propositions;

  • How to create a customer profile and which features of your business are most relevant for them;

  • How to prototype your business idea and validate your product/market fit.

Mike Rijkers
Mike Rijkers will be giving this wokrkshop. While studying anthropology at the University of Amsterdam, Mike Rijkers became particularly interested in the effect of media and technology on society and why some ideas and things became enormously popular and others don’t. Since then he is always looking for patterns that stand out, technological innovations, and consumer trends in order to gain a higher level of understanding of contemporary consumer culture. As Director at Innovate Today, he uses this while he is figuring out how to maintain the relevance of our clients in these times and boost innovative thinking.

This workshop is for North-Holland based entrepreneurs who are starting a sustainable business or project.

 This masterclass is part of our Investment Readiness Canvas series of four masterclasses.
