The first step in the Fish-X program are the microhack workshops. The workshop brings together diverse participants who have ideas for new products or services that aim to solve big industry challenges.

The workshops are hands-on and held over two-days where participants are trained in the Lean Startup approach to understanding and de-risking ideas and business models. Teams or individuals will be selected for the opportunity to continue in the Fish-X Accelerator at the conclusion of the workshop.

What’s Involved 

Over the two-days participants will:

  • Work hands-on their idea using lean start-up methodologies to rapidly test their proposed solution
  • Apply customer led-innovation techniques aimed at discovering their target market and business model
  • Run experiments to further validate their solution and demonstrate traction
  • Learn the lean start-up mindset: Doing wins arguments. Evidence beats opinion
  • Network, share key insights and contacts amongst fellow participants
  • Learn to pitch their ideas with the opportunity to be selected for the Fish-X Accelerator
