Local telecommunications giant Dhiraagu and Sparkhub will hold a virtual workshop for startups, titled 'Lean Startup Maldives', on December 26 and 27.
The two-day workshop will provide a crash course to train participants on how to apply lean methodology in creating lean businesses.
Dhiraagu and Sparkhub noted that many startups begin building their products before their ideas are validated, assuming there was a market for their products. Thus, Lean Startup Maldives aims to equip young entrepreneurs and developers with the right skills, knowledge and mindset, on the steps to be followed before an idea is pitched or developed.
During the workshop, participants will learn how to apply the lean canvas model, as well as the best practices on solutions development. Furthermore, they will be equipped with the "tools and techniques designed to help early stage startups learn the right steps and the process of identifying and acquiring customers towards building a sustainable business before the actual building starts".
They assured that the crash course is based on the latest research in customer development, and lean and agile development.
Dhiraagu and Sparkhub have launched a number of collaborations to support local startups. These initiatives include the Startup Weekend and Angelhack, the first and largest international hackathon held in Maldives.
