Locals looking to get their business ideas off the ground are invited to attend the business idea activation workshop at the Sourdough Innovation Hub on November 26.

The workshop is designed to give people the tools to activate their ideas and/or accelerate their businesses with the Lean Business Model Canvas.

The Canvas gives people the opportunity to add all the key elements of their business model onto one page to test and validate their hypotheses, and to help them to build a repeatable, scalable and successful business.

We’ve also refined it to be purpose-driven and to prompt circular economy principles and design, to assist us to build regenerative businesses that are fit for a thriving future.

Participants will have the opportunity to test and workshop their ideas with other participants as well as the facilitators, and be able to walk away with tangible next steps to activate their ideas.

‘We’re really looking forward to hearing people’s business ideas and workshopping them with you,’ the current president of the Byron Bay Business Chamber, Told Southeren said.

‘And if you don’t have an idea or a business but are thinking about taking the leap, come along too. The Lean Business Model Canvas is a great tool to help you develop your ideas down the track.’

The workshop runs from 5.00 to 7.30pm on November 26 at the Sourdough Innovation Hub, Cnr Burringbar Street and Gordon Sts Mullumbimby.

Tickets range from $20-$150, depending on which subsidies you are eligible for. Check here for details.
