Purpose and goal
The purpose of Angelr Growth was to assist innovators to validate their idea. The goal of the project was to provide all participants with sufficient information to determine whether they would continue to pursue their innovation or not. After the end of the project, we are pleased to have found and helped 20 female innovators to validate their ideas and give them enough support to decide whether or not to continue with their innovation.
Expected results and effects
During the project participants gained new insights of about their innovation and whether they would continue to develop it or not. Many also chose to make changes to an existing idea. It was important for the project group that all participants felt that they had enough information to make the assessment whether to continue or not. Furthermore, we wanted to provide the participants with the toolbox to assess future innovations. The project resulted in finding and helping 20 female innovators to validate their ideas.
Planned approach and implementation
The project started with a marketing period mostly through social media where we target women. After receiving about 200 applications, we had around 40 interviews. After the interviews, we chose 20 female innovators to our program. The program itself consisted of a number of workshops, one of them with guest lecturers, where we went through important aspects of an innovation. The meeting was complemented by individual conversations where we tailored the layout based on the innovator´s questions. The program ended with individual meetings to decide a plan ahead.
