The last educational workshop
The Polish team organised the last educational workshop. The initial plan was to implement design ideas and prototypes created by participants during previous sessions. However, the aim and outcomes of the session had to be adapted to the pandemic circumstances and online possibilities.
During the workshop, we concentrated on verifying business hypotheses at early stages of product and service development. Eventually, in our minds we were following the Steve Blank statement: "Unless you have tested the assumptions in your business model first, outside the building, your business plan is just creative writing". Thanks to this approach, participants created ten mini-projects that generated several thousand organic reaches (mainly on the Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn platforms). As a result, some users showed interest in interacting with students on social media (private messages, reactions, filling out a survey, joining an online event) and shared new knowledge, insights and feedback about the online regeneration community.
