a 12-month program of workshops

for GREAT IDEAS, founders & co-founders

Keyboard and Mouse

There's a lot to do when developing an idea or just starting a business.

 

Most of your time will be spent on business development (sales) and business administration (setup, accounting, emails, social, etc). And that leaves little time left for actually working IN the business generating revenue ($$$).

GC Hub and Design Moshpit have partnered to put together this 12-month program of workshops. It's about putting aside a few hours each month to work on developing your idea or business.

 

Something we either DON'T do, or don't do well.

 

That's why we partnered to create the Startup Hub Program. To carve out a time, a space and a recipe for developing an idea or starting up. Then you won't have to worry about knowing "what to do when".

These workshops are designed to get you started (and finished) designing your business and below is a collection of the Startup Hub Program of workshops.

 

But first...where to start?

WHERE DO I START?

1. I HAVE A BUSINESS OR IDEA.   2. I HAVE NO BUSINESS OR IDEA.

Design Moshpit Idea Expansion Workshop.p

Whether you already have a business idea or whether you have no idea at all, we start in the same place.  

 

If you already have an idea, let's validate it.

The worst thing you can ever do as a startup, is start a business you later find out you don't enjoy being in. This workshop might save you a few years on developing the wrong idea/business or, you'll find out your idea/business is in alignment with you. Great!

If you don't have an idea we'll find one inline with your values.

A idea that isn't in line with you and your values isn't sustainable. At some point you'll wake up to discover you're not enjoying the process anymore. Actually you never did!!! This is not the path to attaining fulfilment and happiness. Good ideas are all about the process. You want to enjoy the time you spend on your idea and see money coming back in time too.

StartupWorkshops_CustomerPersona.png

CUSTOMER PERSONA | Define your buyer A fictional representation of an actual user and is applied in the early stages of product/service design and development. They are vital because they drive design decisions by taking common user needs and bringing them to the forefront of planning before design has actually started.

BRANDING DESIGN| Your Promise A brand that is consistent and clear puts the customer at ease because they know exactly what to expect each and every time they experience the brand. Your brand represents you and your promise to your customer. Research, define, and build your brand.

PRODUCT DESIGN | Utilising Needs & Desires. Because our society is essentially globalised, product design has become more important than ever. While our need for goods are still basic, what we desire is a different story. Great product design utilises our needs and our desires in order to capitalise on consumerism.

SERVICE DESIGN | Improving Customer Interactions. The activity of planning and organising people, infrastructure, communication and material components of a service in order to improve its quality and the interaction between the service provider and its customers.

StartupWorkshops.BusinessStrategy.png

BUSINESS STRATEGY | Vision & Direction. A business strategy creates a vision and direction for the whole organisation. It is important that all people within a company have clear goals and are following the direction, or mission of the organisation. A strategy can provide this vision and prevent individuals from losing sight of their company's aims. 

BUSINESS METRICS | Tracking Progress. Used to drive improvements and help businesses focus their people and resources on what's important. Overall, metrics should reflect and support the various strategies for all aspects of the organisation. Business metrics are the measurements a company uses to track its progress toward performance goals. 

StartupWorkshops.UXDesign.png

DIGITAL UX DESIGN | Design For CustomersUX is every bit as essential as the aesthetic components of a website or mobile application. You could have the best-looking online platform on the market, but if customers cannot quickly learn how to utilise it, they will leave it behind.

StartupWorkshops.BuildPlanning.png

BUILD PLANNING | Developing Software Functionality. The purpose of build (sprint) planning is to define what part of the software can be developed in a period of time and how that will be achieved. Sprint planning is done with the whole team. The objective is to deliver working software while continuously learning and improving.

StartupWorkshops.Commercialisation.png

COMMERCIALISATION | Going To Market. Commercialisation is the process of making new products or services available in the market. It's generating income from the audience that consumes your product and services. The more you know about your audience, the better, as that’s what investors and commercial partners are interested in and it’s often how you’ll develop a distinct sales proposition.

DIGITAL MARKETING | Reaching The Market. Reach an enormous audience in a way that is both cost-effective and measurable. You can save money and reach more customers for less money than traditional marketing methods. Get to know your audience and allow them to know you personally which can help to create brand loyalty.

INVESTMENT PITCHING | Make The Next Meeting. Startups prepare a “pitch deck” to present their company to prospective angel or venture capital investors. The pitch deck consists of 15-20 slides in a presentation and is intended to showcase the company's products, technology, and team to the investors.
