Building a Board with Funding in Mind
Investors are coveted by most startups, but few know how to land one. This workshop demonstrates how to build an advisory board and board of directors with funding in mind. Led by Texas A&M’s Shelly Brenckman, attendees will learn how to construct a board capable of raising capital for promising startups.
Equity, Funding and Valuation
Funding is an essential and challenging undertaking for almost every startup. From courting investors to valuation and term sheets, Bart Bohn will walk you through everything you need to know about funding your startup.
Lean UX: Idea to Product
This workshop will teach you a framework based on Lean UX using structured design exercises to reduce the risk of downstream mistakes and help you focus on achieving product/market fit. You’ll learn how to implement and optimize the six phases of a Design Sprint: Understand, Define, Diverge, Converge, Prototype, and Test. You’ll learn why and how Design Sprints work and how you can use Design Sprints to build a prototype and validate customer demand.
Getting your First 20 Customers
Delivering something that solves a customer’s problem or creating something that delights users is a huge accomplishment. Many young entrepreneurs are stumped when it comes to landing their first batch of customers, beyond their parents and significant others.This panel, led by Bobby Martin, author of The Hockey Stick Principle, is meant to aim pre-revenue startups in the right direction.
Landing Page Building
A brilliant landing page is essential to early stage companies. Where do you start? Diego Granziol from the University of Oxford will run participants through the essentials of concocting a compelling, attractive landing page. This workshop is the first of a two-part series. Its counterpart, Landing Page Teardown, will take place on day 2.
Raising Corporate Venture Capital
Corporate venture capital is a little-known but growing approach to funding a startup. CVC accounted for 17% of VC funding in 2015, and that number is expected to grow. This session is for learning which industries and corporations fund startups, and how to approach them.
