Building an MVP and pitching

Posted by Fiona

At some point in their journey every entrepreneur has to create a minimum viable product, and although not all will decide to pitch to investors, it’s an incredibly useful skill to have. Local meal prep company Gains On The Go gave an insightful and interactive presentation on how to build an MVP and pitch to investors. Focusing on their journey of creating a successful MVP, and how you can too! How invaluable market research is in creating the best MVP possible, what went wrong when they were creating their MVP and how they overcame many hurdles to become a success.

With fun tasks such as creating your own silly MVP and actually pitching it to the audience, where the best two ideas won an entrepreneurship related book, this was an event not to be missed! We also heard how three inspiring student entrepreneurs created their MVPs. These were: Avila.Diana cards; creating diverse and inclusive cards, Maison; hoping to make student housing easier than ever and hoping to roll out portable charging points across the UK. This engaging and inspiring event was extremely useful to anyone who attended and is exclusive to FoT!
