For the third time, Startup Weekend Stavanger was a fantastic event. Energy, creativity, ideas and – most importantly – making amazing stuff happen. Kudos to the whole organizing team and the fantastic group of participants, mentors, judges and supporters!
Welcome back to the fall event 2013.
Join the Facebook Group here and see the action.
Some of the ideas turned companies this weekend:
My opening keynote Friday evening
Asked to give a talk to ”boost the energy and drive” for the Startup Weekend partcipants. Mix a bit of energy and a selection of strategy tools. This presentation introduce the participants to the Strategic Innovation Canvas, Innovation Thinking Modes, the Innovation Pyramid and the well-established Business Model Canvas. All tools can be downloaded in high resolution .pdf for use by the crowds at Startup Weekend. Good luck, people
Stay tuned, as we lauch Strategytoolsforthenextgeneration next week…
Groups working,, focus….
Thinking, contemplating, coaching with the mentor.
I love Villgjær. This local, Stavanger-based, beer brewery is a radical innovator. In design, in marketing, in products, they are rethinking and innovating in face of the current industry dynamics.
Next, it’s time for them to develop a business model. I challenge them to rethink and redesign their business model.
My suggestion; High-end, subscription model, with pre-paid cash flows.
Basically, copy Nespresso’s model into the beer industry. It might just work.
High-End, subscription model with pre-paid cash flows: a radical business model for beer…
Next, I will do an innovation analysis on Villgjær’s business model using the Innovation Pyramid. Stay tuned.
While you wait, get on and “like” their Facebook site.
One more week and we kick off StartUp Weekend Stavanger. We are proud to be able to contribute to this fantastic and important event. Elisabeth Ovstebo will be on the judges panel to select the best startup company. Christian Rangen will give a keynote on Pirate Thinking and then help out as mentor during the weekend. Armed with innovation thinking modes, the Business Model Canvas and the Innovation Pyramid, it’ll be a great entreprenurial weekend!
