This introductory session will look at how a variety of online tools can be used to develop your business concept, and how to investigate whether your idea is really needed or desired by potential customers.

During the session we will cover:

  • Introduction to Business planning
  • Identifying and understanding your potential customers
  • Introduction to Sheffield Startup Support
  • The Nine Building Blocks of the Business Model Canvas

Darren Chouings leads startup support for social entrepreneurs at The University of Sheffield. Alongside supporting the development of these businesses, Darren also designs acceleration programmes that support local enterprise and international partner institutions. Passionate about entrepreneurship, Darren also manages a UK based international contemporary art events programme (PRISM) and works as a freelance animator and production manager in Europe.
