Rob Adams returning as ICEHOUSE International Entrepreneur in Residence

Startup investor, author, consultant and former top-level executive Dr Rob Adams is returning to New Zealand in July and will be involved in a series of workshops for entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, CEOs and product development managers. 

This is Adams' third visit as part of The ICEHOUSE International Entrepreneur in Residence Programme.

The workshops:

New Venture Creation Workshop – Turning Ideas into Revenue

With his new workshop concept New Venture Creation, Adams will build on the market validation focused work of the past two years. In addition to market validation, this workshop will also cover the other three key stages of taking new product to market: Business Models, Financials and Communications.

This full-day workshop is aimed at equipping attendees with a core set of skills needed to take new ventures and products to market.

The workshop will be held in three locations across the North Island:

Auckland – 2 July
Tauranga – 9 July
Hawkes Bay – 11 July

Executive Market Validation Workshop

Market Validation is a proven methodology to reduce the risk of product failure by proving the existence of a market opportunity before investing significant amounts of time and money. This workshop will be kept very small to enable all attendees to interact directly with Adams and have the opportunity to get his advice for their specific project and product development plans.

Auckland – 5 July
