Validation Workshop: How Ideas Become Businesses

  • Groundswell Clubhouse 421-268 Keefer St. Vancouver BC V6A 1X5 (up elevators to 4th floor, then go down the right hallway) (map)

In lean startup terminology, validation is the process of testing a hypothesis (your business idea) by speaking to the ideal advisory board - your potential customers! You don’t have to be a startup tech company to take advantage of this technique. Groundswell alumni have launched non-profit organizations, design firms, catering companies, textile recycling initiatives, coffee import businesses and more, all using this simple but deep methodology.

Are you an entrepreneur at heart? Do you need resources but ‘business school’ is NOT your jam? Do you have a strong desire to support yourself and make a change in the world? Groundswell might be a good fit for you. We invite you to be our guest at this awesome 3 hour workshop (valued at $300 ), then join Groundswell co-founder Gilad Babchuk for an informal information session.


In this workshop you will:

Receive an introduction to the Social Lean Canvas

Receive Validation Tools and Exercises

Learn how to reduce risk over time with continued Validation Processes

Cost: $15

Remember Entrepreneurship is a muscle, not an art!
