Planzai - the user-friendly business process template app - is teaming up with start-up advisor Andrew Dubber to help aspiring entrepreneurs take their business idea to the next level at Derry’s CultureTech Festival.

Taking place at the inaugural CultureTech Festival in Derry, the free Planzai Idea Lunch offers participants the chance to work with experienced start-up entrepreneurs and developers to ‘validate’ their ideas, understand the market, and the risks, and make a plan to get started.

Planzai founder and CEO Rich Dale says: “Starting a company is really challenging and, for most people, it’s a huge risk. We’ve worked with other successful founders to create a simple method for budding entrepreneurs to understand, and reduce, the risks associated with starting a business.

“CultureTech is the perfect venue for this workshop as many of the delegates may be inspired to turn an idea into reality but don’t know where to start.”

Facilitated by startup adviser, writer and academic Andrew Dubber, the event will see the launch of the Planzai Startup Blueprint.

It’s a recommended series of actions designed by people who’ve been there before that can help you understand your business idea, find out if there’s a market, and decide how to take the next step.

Andrew Dubber says: “I’ve watched many aspiring entrepreneurs get caught up in the excitement of their idea only to fail because they haven’t properly understood the market or customer they want to sell to. The Planzai Startup Blueprint is a great way to save time, money, and embarrassment, as it gives the inexperienced founder bite-sized tasks to follow to ‘de-risk’ their idea.”

The Planzai Idea Lunch takes place at the Millennium Forum on Saturday, September 1 from 1pm-3pm. Admission is free but registration is required. Register at
