SimVenture Validate Learning Solution
SimVenture Validate is an on-line platform building on thinking and methodology underpinning the world-renowned Business Model Canvas. Simple to use, Validate lets anyone develop and test business ideas, measure market demand, and check all key assumptions that fit within a self-constructing business plan. Take a look on this site to see how Validate is applied.
How Validate works
As an on-line resource, Validate offers a ‘block by block’ structured approach to learning. Working much like a detective on their own business idea, users build a portfolio of information that identifies gaps and assumptions that have to be filled and proven. Whilst Validate is easy to start, the questions (which are all carefully structured around the segments within the Business Model Canvas) become increasingly challenging and importantly, users quickly discover what they don’t know.
By being asked the right questions, completing market research, seeking expert advice and critically, getting out of the building, users are able to properly validate their own business idea. At the same time, tutors and teachers are able to view and assess user progress through the on-line environment.
SimVenture Validate also has an ideation feature for people who are yet to establish their own business idea. By combining on-screen questions and a varied selection of images, Validate lets users develop a better understanding of where personal interest and opportunity might intersect.
Who uses Validate?
The platform works for both commercial and social entrepreneurship business ideas and suits college, undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Validate can also provide excellent support for ‘intrepreneurship’ thinking and projects within larger organisations.
The learning solution can be used intensively over a day or more. Alternatively, users of the software can build their portfolio over a period of time to fit in with any course of module at college, undergraduate, graduate or corporate level.
