Prelaunch Series – Will It Fly?

February 5, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm MST



Will it fly? How to determine if clients will buy before you build

February 5, 2019. 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Before building a plane, engineers spend a considerable amount of time testing the aerodynamics of its design. This validation process allows them to understand how external forces will act (and hopefully) lift the aircraft.

The process and mindset is the same for savvy entrepreneurs.

Before you even build your product or service, you can (and should) test your ideas through a variety of methods. Here to share some of those methods with you is TEC Executive in Residence, Kurian Tharakan.

Join us in the heart of Downtown Edmonton to:

1. Learn how to leverage free and paid internet tools to secure market validation such as

  • Google Search
  • Google Keyword Planner
  • Amazon
  • Facebook / Twitter / LinkedIn
  • Moz
  • Buzz Sumo
  • Surveys and Intercepts

2. Learn quick analysis techniques to determine how your competition is positioning itself

3. Build a product ecosystem model to determine your product’s place and fit

4. Learn from case studies of successful product launches

NOTE: Refund requests will only be accepted 48 hours prior to this workshop
