Validator Bootcamp! Starting next week!

What is it and why get involved?

A core part of the Generator Online incubator is the Validator, which will consist of online tools, learning modules, discussion forums and interactive face-to-face workshops to build expertise in regional innovators. Participants will all go through an actual idea validation process and at the end of the program will pitch their ideas to the rest of the cohort. The pitch will involve reflecting on the validation outcome i.e. either fail fast, pivot or continue the idea through to commercial reality.
In the simplest terms, the Validator bootcamp will help innovators to determine if they are creating something people actually want to buy.

Cost and how to apply

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the program is being offered for FREE in 2019 for successful applicants. To apply, complete the short EOI form HERE!
