Assume and Make an Ass Out of You and Your Startup

Saturday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon A
500 E 4th St


When you decrease your startup’s risk, you increase its value. If you can define your core assumptions and test them as quickly and cheaply as possible, you can put your startup on the right track to grow to a successful business. You can build a business model around those assumptions and prove them, then have the evidence you need to prove your company’s worth when you go out to fundraise. DreamIt Co-Founder Steve Welch speaks with DreamIt alums about how they have successfully used this methodology to prove his business model and make a case with investors.
