Team360 2day Pre-Workshop
To all mission-driven entrepreneurs,
On January 2016 Impact HUB Tokyo will launch the seventh batch of its accelerator program Team360. The previous six programs have run from 2013 to March 2015, from which 45 entrepreneurs have 'graduated'. Many of these graduates have been able to make great impact through their business endeavors after the program, and continue having that impact today still. In addition, since the last program batch of spring 2015, the program has been brushed up and developed even further in order to increase the potential impact of entrepreneurs who join the program.
When striving for a mission, a sustainable business model is necessary in order to enable an entrepreneur to make meaningful impact. The Team360 accelerator program is specifically designed for those mission-driven entrepreneurs who want to validate their business model in order to create impact. It's a program that targets those entrepreneurs who want to consolidate their business idea and team structure, and are looking to scale and reach more customers.
This pre-workshop is a 2-day session before the actual Team360 program starts in January. The goal of this pre-workshop is to: make you question some key assumptions about your business, give you a glimpse of what the program is going to look like, and to help you decide if this accelerator program is right for you. The 2-day workshop is a highly condensed version of the full Team360 program and will touch upon its main essence.
Let’s talk business: earnestly, with your team/co-founder
こThe pre-workshop deals with the very first stage of successfully setting up a business. We ask you to join this workshop together with your co-founder with whom you have developed/are developing your business plan. When setting up a new business, many people might expect to be talking about issues like: product concept, who to connect with, how to approach customers, and how to gain/retain customers.
However, before doing that, have you had a proper sit-down with your co-founder/team about why you are doing what you’re doing and the direction you want to take the business? This 2 day workshop will be the perfect opportunity to (re)visit those questions in order to, not just re-evaluate your business, but to build a strong and healthy team.
The Pre-Workshop: Open to everyone
There is no selection procedure for the pre-workshop; everyone can participate. However, the following conditions are expected to be met by applicants:
Serious commitment to your business. Meaning, spending a large portion of your time on the planning and launching phase. Being an entrepreneur is your main priority, instead of a mere side/part-time job
You already have a co-founder/team, or people who believe in your idea
You are able to participate both days of the pre-workshop
You have already registered your company or are planning to do so in the next half year
What you can expect from this pre-workshop
Reaffirm the relationship with your team/co-founder and address the points that still seem unclear
Apply course correction to those points that seem to deviate from your mission

Gain a clear understanding of what you really want to offer and to whom
