LEAN LAUNCH, A NEW 'START UP BUSINESS MODEL' INITIATIVE FROM LOCAL ENTERPRISE OFFICE GALWAY

Lean Launch 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 businessin 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.  Declan is an experienced Entrepreneur, business consultant and business mentor. He is founder of one of Ireland’s most distinctive, artisan food companies, Kinvara Smoked Salmon.  He is a business Mentor with Galway LEO, Mayo Leo, SCCUL and Enterprise Ireland and lecturer with UCD Innovation Academy and with GMIT New Frontiers. He also delivers lean start up courses to start-up and early stage entrepreneurs.
