As entrepreneurs develop their new business ideas, it is important to go out and get as much expert advice and input as possible. Concept Development focuses on helping the entrepreneur create a clear path forward for developing measurable outcomes on the road to venture success. On the front end of ITEN’s focused curriculum, Concept Development prepares entrepreneurs for agile company building in Business Model Validation and beyond.

Concept Development includes networking events (2nd Thursday, 1 Million Cups, etc.) and opportunities for entrepreneurs to find talent and augment their startup (Talent Finder).  We also strongly recommend spending time with online resources, such as Founders’ School.

ITEN believes that the startup environment is a contact sport and Concept Development helps entrepreneurs get out and make needed connections.
