*Based on feedback and requests, we elected to shift the start of the Roadmap to MVP from December 10th to January 7th
This 6-part workshop program helps women establish their MVP.

About this Event

Developing the technology solution to show how your company solves a business problem can be a barrier for women and women identified founders. The lack of technical skill to self-develop a minimal viable product (MVP) can delay entry into the market or cost the founder more dollars up front to contract development skills leaving them short of funding to drive other needed activities of early stage start ups. Haltech in partnership with Silicon Halton have created Roadmap to MVP as a way to accelerate through this milestone. This series will take women through a 6-part workshop program to help women establish their MVP.

Delivered by experts with years of experience, the content will focus on creating a vision for the solution, learning about the processes involved for solo development, assisted development by appointing a team of specialists, and the available platforms to help women bring their ideas to an MVP to test in market.


Participant Eligibility

  • Women and Women Identified Founders
  • Best suited for entrepreneurs in idea, discovery and early validation stages


You will registration will be confirmed.
