The HealthTech Activator’s (HTA) next Auckland market validation workshop, Knowing your Customer and your Market, takes place on 5 December 2023.
A lack of robust market validation is one of the most common weaknesses of healthtech businesses searching for investment. It can lead you to make the wrong product for the wrong customer and cause you to miss valuable opportunities.
This workshop will help you:
- Reframe an offering from a product- or technology-centric perspective to a customer-centric perspective
- Create a Job-To-Be-Done customer motivation canvas
- Create a value proposition shaped around customer problems and challenges
- Create a set of customer attribute assumptions to be validated
- Manage data collection for validation
The workshop is aimed at early stage healthtech companies, or healthtech companies that would like to have a fresh look at their market and how they have validated it to date.
The workshop is run by Will Perry and Shaun Wilson from Apagie, who use their cross-industry experience to give companies the right processes and perspectives for successfully commercialising their health technology .
- Pre-workshop: pre-reading from an information package shared in the week before by the facilitators.
- Workshop: 5 December, 9am - 5pm: morning and afternoon sessions with lunch and tea included
- Post-workshop: optional follow up discussion with the workshop facilitators.
- Cost: $50 (incl. GST and booking fee)
- Attendance is limited to eight companies, with a maximum two attendees per company
To confirm your place please no later than 28 November 2023.
