Startup Academy: Getting Your First Customer

November 8, 2017 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
TRU Generator - House of Learning Building
900 McGill Rd
Kamloops, BC V2C 6N6

If you had a room full of people how would you find your customers?

We’ll show you how to identify the people most likely to be your first customers and how to target them. At the end of this session, you will have the tools to identify who your customers are. This is critical for testing your business idea, getting feedback from them and maybe your first sale!


Who is this for?

  • You’re interested in starting a business (you don’t need an idea to participate)
  • You’ve recently started a business, but looking for the next steps
  • You want to hear what other students and entrepreneurs are working on
  • You’re interested in learning about entrepreneurship

Startup Academy is a series of sessions helping entrepreneurs learn the skill set to evaluate business ideas, identify ideal customers, and develop a pitch. Each session focuses on a different topic. Led by John Zubak, an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Kamloops Innovation & TRU Generator, participants will connect with other entrepreneurs on the same path, meet with experienced mentors and industry experts, and learn how to move their business ideas forward.
