[FW-ENG-01] Business idea
(Kröll, M. )

The initial question for the first learning sprint of the Founders’ Workshop is the following: How can the product or service be described in more detail so that it is easy for a layperson or potential customer to understand (see figure 1)?


The basis for starting a successful business is to find a new business idea with a high potential for development and success. If you have gone through the learning project “Employment Radar”, then you have learned how to identify the possible potential for a new business idea in a region. However, regardless of this, you can first try to develop a new business idea by thinking about the economic situation in your area.
