Venture Development Series #1: From Wild Idea to First Steps

September 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CDT

Join us to learn how to take your first steps in to entrepreneurship.

Maybe you’ve just got an idea for a business, an inkling of a problem, or an insight into a need – how to do you go quickly from ideating to prototyping and gathering feedback from users and customers? Join Hesam Panahi, Lilie’s Director of Strategic Initiatives and Programs, to get fired up for your first steps into entrepreneurship.

In this hands on workshop, learn how to quickly generate and validate a startup idea with zero dollars, limited time, and real customers. Students will become comfortable with:

  • Identifying problems in the world around you
  • Figuring out the most important thing to test to validate your idea
  • Building a pretotype very cheaply and quickly

The workshop is open to all Rice University students and faculty, as well as members of Lilie’s Rice Alumni Entrepreneurs Association.
