Day 1 : The Business Hothouse will kick off the boot camp by helping you to define the purpose of your business - primarily how your product or service will meet or solve the needs and wants of your potential customer.


You'll also develop a good Value Proposition statement which will help to communicate exactly what it is that your business does. They'll work with the Business Model Canvas which will help you to find the right business model to successfully deliver your business idea into the marketplace.


Day 2: The Business Hothouse will start this session by exploring who your customer is through building a customer persona and we'll look at how you can exploit market research through developing a questionnaire.
