Lean Startup Talk For Entrepreneurs & Innovators


Mon. 19 February 2018 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm AEST 

Spark Bureau and RDA Sunshine Coast are excited to host an information session on contemporary methods of launching new businesses and how ‘lean start-up’ principles lower the cost and risk of becoming an entrepreneur. The talk - open to any business owner or would be entrepreneur - will also help established businesses identify more affordable ways to innovate products and services. Book your ticket here.


Launching a new business – or innovating and evolving an established firm – involves risk. Many new ventures fail. What can be done to increase your chances of success and to reduce the possibility of spending your precious time and money building a product or service that no-one wants?

Over the past few years, the so called “Lean Start-Up’ movement has redefined the way contemporary entrepreneurs approach new-business creation. During this information-packed talk, presenter Tim Eldridge will compare and contrast new practices to old techniques, outline what goes on in a contemporary start-up and share a some of the tools, techniques and processes that are revolutionising the way innovation is being commercialised today.

Tim will also refer you to a wide range of helpful 3rd party source materials and resources (many of which are freely available online – if you know where to look) to help you on your way.

So, expect an informative talk, bring a notepad, and meet other would-be entrepreneurs and business owners passionate about the commercialisation of new product and services ideas.
