Whether you’re on the verge of introducing a new product, gathering customer feedback for your prototype, or currently operating in the market but struggling to grow, you are undoubtedly seeking strategies to enhance your chances of success by solidly validating your market position. Here is where the Market Readiness Program, starting on February 1, 2024, can provide assistance for you!

The Market Readiness Program, offered by Gritd and personally guided by InnovationQuarter, aims to assist you in pinpointing a distinct customer segment and effectively positioning your product or service. Within ten weeks, you will engage in a sequence of workshops, acquiring the skills to test and validate your assumptions about your customers.

From insight to commitment

In the first weeks of the program, you focus on validating the customer problem. Then, you work on refining your product, fine-tuning the business model and securing commitment from your first customers. The program also includes pitching training, enabling you to confidently present your idea to potential investors.

Engage in the Market Readiness Program to: 

  • Enhance the probability of transforming your idea into a sustainable revenue model.
  • Develop a sharp focus on prioritizing your attention, time and financial resources.
  • Gain comprehensive knowledge and insights about your customers and the essential revenue model.
  • Formulate a concrete action plan for the upcoming phase of your business.
