    Value propositionWorkshop 1, 17th August, CBRIN.

  • The program+ Ten weeks to develop, validate and pitch an innovative idea.

    + Participate in intensive workshops, expert seminars & other special events.

    + Be matched with, and guided by, mentors.

    + Engage with the local innovation ecosystem.

    + The top teams will pitch for a share of $50,000 grants.

    + All teams eligible for other prizes and startup support.

  • Ideas+ Early stage ideas are best suited to program.

    + Don’t need to be ready to launch by the end of 10 weeks, but we want to see evidence of validation.

    + Don’t need to stick with the same idea, but the more progress you make during the program the better.

    + All disciplines, e.g. software, hardware, research, social ventures, etc.

  • Eligibility+ Teams must consist of two to five people.

    + Teams must be made up of current ANU students (and maximum 1x approved Wildcard entry, if required).

    + All team members must be registered as part of the team by deadline – 11:59pm 17th August.

    + If you don’t meet the criteria, you may still participate, but you won’t be eligible to receive grants. But it’s not all about the money – the skills, tools & networks you can gain are invaluable.

  • Shortlisting+ Complete Challenges throughout the program to earn points for

    your team (points standings will not be made public). Challenges will be announced during events and on the IACT website.

    + On 2nd Oct, 20 teams with highest Challenge scores will have their ventures presented to the IACT19 Judging Panel (made up of key representatives from Canberra’s startup community).

    + Judges select 10 teams to present at IACT19 Pitch Night.

  • StakeholdersWhat did you find?

  • Understanding needs

  • The tasks your customers are trying to get done in their work or life, or problems they want to solve.

    1. Functional jobs are specific tasks like mowing the lawn.

    2. Social jobs are how they want to be perceived by others.

    3. Emotional jobs are when they want to feel a certain way.

    Customer jobs

  • The things that annoy your customers before, during or after they are trying to complete a job.

    1. Problems can be functional, social or emotional.

    2. Obstacles prevent them from starting or finishing the job.

    3. Risks are things that could go wrong or have bad results.

    Customer pains

  • Customer gainsDescribe the outcomes or benefits a customer wants.

    1. Required gains are those a solution must provide.

    2. Expected gains are those that we expect from a solution.

    3. Desired gains are those we would love to have if possible.

    4. Unexpected gains are those that we don’t know we want.

  • Customer personasCollection of realistic representative information about a customer or group of customers which can include fictitious information for a more accurate characterisation.

    1. Some attributes of a Persona should be based in reality, in particular those which are highly relevant to your venture;

    2. Personas can also include imaginary characteristics, such as their name, image and any other attributes which are not relevant to your venture.

  • Customer personasWhat did you learn?

  • The competition+ Direct competitors are those who offer products or services

    that address similar/identical needs.

    + Indirect competitors offer close substitutes and are common when you have an innovative or completely new offering.

    + Future competitors are those who could enter your market in the future, sometimes based on the success of your venture. It is important to develop strategies to counter them.

  • Competitive analysisHow much better than current solutions will our solution be? Try to measure this!

    1. Time costs encourage us to provide a quicker solution.

    2. Monetary costs encourage us to provide a cheaper solution.

    3. Effort costs encourage us to provide an easier solution.

  • Competitive analysisWhere can you win?

  • Creating value

  • What is value?

  • What is value?+ A bias or interest that motivates action.

    + Value is a verb as well as a noun. People value things, and what they value is personal; we can only tell what another person values from the way they behave.

    + Value is a process. People anticipate value, which motivates them to act. By taking action, they realise value. Depending on the realised value, they re-evaluate and may act differently in future.

  • The value proposition+ The bundle of products and services that create value

    for a specific stakeholder.

    + They are formed through activities of reciprocal exchange of knowledge between stakeholders.

    + They respond to the needs of the customer, providing ways of overcoming pains and achieving gains.
