QBIC provided me with all the tools I need to succeed! During our LeanStartup coaching sessions, we signed Letters of Intent with eight of the largest real estate companies in Qatar, a goal we thought was far beyond our reach!

QBIC has offered me a unique experience to realize my ideas, and see my company launch. Through their programs, I was able to learn all about the different stages of starting my perfumery company, managing it, and growing it. So far, it has been a tremendous success and I owe it all to the Lean Startup program.

Program Description

The Lean Startup Program (LSP)

The Lean Startup Program (LSP), one of QBIC’s flagship programs, is an 11-week entrepreneurial journey that provides real world, hands-on learning experiences on how to start a company. The main objective of the LSP is to work toward achieving Problem solution-fit and a deeper customer feedback on suggestive revenue models and channel fit through a series of experimentations.

Business Model Canvas

Using the Business Model Canvas, entrepreneurs map out their company’s structure and an overview of how their business works. Participants will then use the Customer Development Model to get validation for their proposed business idea. Based on their customers’ feedback, the participants will use Agile Development to create a product/service that meets/satisfies their customers’ needs. Participants will then develop a minimum viable product and, through a series of online and one on one interaction with customers, validate the premise of their value propositions, revenue model, and channel tactics.

Pitch & Present

At the end of the LSP, the participants develop a strong pitch, and present their startup concept, achievements and vision to judges for a chance to be incubated at QBIC.
