Lean Launch

LEAN LAUNCH, A “START UP BUSINESS MODEL” INITIATIVE FROM THE GALWAY LOCAL ENTERPRISE OFFICE

Test your business idea with a new type of Start your own business training.

Lean Launch is being run in Galway by the Galway Local Enterprise Office (GLEO) starting in April 2018

 This is a ‘hands-on’ real world entrepreneurial start up situation where the individual has an idea and the purpose of this workshop is to immediately start testing the business model. Research has shown that 49% of Irish people would like to start their own business; 50% fail in the first year and a staggering 80% fail within 3 years. With the guidance of the mentor, the entrepreneurs are taken through actual steps and get out of the classroom / training situation and physically do the market research. Entrepreneurs analyse their business model and how to cost their business. Fundamental to the programme, entrepreneurs look at their potential customers and conduct a number of real world research interviews in the three month period.

 Lean Launch will allow participants to establish whether there is a real business in their idea. At the end of the programme participants should be in the strong position to start their own business.

 Lean Launch will be facilitated by Declan Droney who founded Kinvara Smoked Salmon and in 2011 Declan acquired Blakes Organic Chocolate from its founder. Kinvara Smoked Salmon is one of Irelands best known Organic & Artisan seafood brands.

This is heavily subsidised by the GLEO, costing only EUR150 to entrepreneurs and is limited to 12 places only.   Entrepreneurs must have a business idea.
