Each stage = 1 one-day sprint + field work.
The 1DA program consists of three stages. Each stage starts with a "One Day Sprint" which equips you to conduct field work until the next sprint.
The One Day Sprint is a 5-hour workshop, conducted remotely over Zoom (with your co-founders and team, if you have one). The Sprint equips you to conduct the right type of field work, gathering the feedback, data and validation you need to proceed with confidence.
We also offer a few add-on modules for specific important steps aong the way, like fundraising, audience building a sales.

You started with an idea, but you make progress with a customer.
Many founders make the critical mistake of coming up with an idea and jumping straight to building a product. We've made this mistake in the past ourselves.
1DA Stage 1 is all about your customer: who they are (exactly), their problems, desired outcomes, existing solutions, and more.
Stage 1 begins with a 5-hour workshop where you'll learn a specific process for finding and interviewing them to get the exact insights you need in order to ultimately build a product that they will love and pay for.
From there, you'll do the Stage 1 field work: conducting user interviews to validate your customer persona and their problems, and ensuring that the dynamic will support a sustainable business.
