We come across a lot of people with a startup idea (or two) that really struggle with knowing what to do next to put their ideas into action. In this talk we'll be showing you how to get your idea onto paper, by introducing the Happy Startup Canvas, your one page business plan. As you may know by now our purpose at the School is to 'help dreamers do' so this is a great opportunity to learn how we help entrepreneurs realise their vision on a day-to-day basis.
