The masterclass will start after a light lunch and the visit to the Biclazio Rome Fab Lab that hosts innovators in the creative sector.

Day 2: Ensuring your business model is viable and that you can show you are investment ready

The business model is the core of any successful startup, no matter how great an idea is or how unique an offer may seem, a startup must have a viable way of making money which is sufficient for future investment and enables it to be able to sustain itself. Questions like “What business model works best with my idea?” or “How do I know if my startup is using the right model?” are two of many questions founders need to consider in order to ultimately impact the overall long term success of their venture. During the workshop we will try to answer these questions.
