Design for Entrepreneurs: Business Models, Plans and Prototypes (Workshops)

​Matthew Manos, instructor at General Assembly and founder of verynice studio, whose notable clients include UNICEF, NASA and Google will lead a workshop on building sustainable business models 











Having a good idea is not enough to run a successful and fast-growing startup. It is important to know how to sell it, develop and maintain the interest of the audience. In order to create a viable business model for clients, business designers develop innovative tools. With an emphasis on game-based learning, participants will be thrown into a deep-dive that will give practitioners and enthusiasts of all levels of experience a great framework for approaching real-world problems using business design.

Participants will:

— develop a business model that guarantees long-term development

— create a business plan

— create a product prototype
