In the next installment of IML’s webinar series, Brian Dorricott from Meteorical joins us to provide an overview of the process of starting with an idea all the way to a business proposition. Brian has helped clients understand the process and make the right decisions resulting in savings of more than $100,000.
Brian has built and sold two businesses and completed decades of research into the optimum strategy to establish the best process which has just five key steps that you can easily follow. On the way we’ll discuss issues around idea theft, how to utilise your key insights and how much of your time it will all take.
After the webinar you will receive a set of the slides and a one-page summary of the process. Three participants will also have the option of a complementary one-hour video conference with Brian in the two weeks following the webinar.
During this lunchtime session you will:
- Learn about the process to convert an idea to money
- Discover the secret to asking the right questions without giving away your idea
- Find ways to test if the solution solves the problem (without spending much money)
- Explore the finance options for your idea
**Please note this is a recorded session!
