The MVP (Minimum Viable Product) has taken on almost mythical status in recent times but just what is an MVP, when should you use an MVP and what are the benefits?
Join us at our next event on Monday 10th March when we’ll be discussing MVPs in more detail, hearing from both local and international entrepreneurs on the what, when, where and how of their MVP experiences.
Thanks to our generous friends at NCFE we’re holding the event at NCFE’s snazzy new offices at Quorum Business Park and there will be tasty pizzas and lots of opportunity to meet and chat.

Glenn Morrill, Director at MyMoneyPA
Simplifying personal financial management isn’t easy but that’s just what MyMoneyPA is aiming to do and they’ve been on quite a journey so far.
After pivoting they created the MyMoneyPA mobile app that helps you keep track of where your money goes.
Glenn will talk about how the company, working with RyanFosterDesign, prototyped, coded, tested and improved an MVP of the mobile app over an intense 2 week iteration.

StudioAlt was founded in late 2013, with the objective of being the UK site of choice for Digital, Tech and Startups to purchase physical toolkits that will both empower and aid collaboration.
Tony will talk about starting a new venture in your spare time and how the use of an MVP, testing and setting success criteria can help you manage the risks involved in getting a new venture off the ground.
