Join Jared Carlson, a social impact entrepreneur with extensive practical experience, as he shares valuable tools he wishes he had when he started his startup journey. Jared is the co-founder of Savviest, an AI-job-hunting platform that was acquired by PAIRIN in 2023.

In this interactive workshop, Jared will provide an insider's perspective on his startup journey, revealing the business tools he wishes he had used earlier to validate his startup concept.
He'll share practical tools you can add to your startup toolkit, including:

  • The Lean Business Canvas by Ash Maurya to iterate your startup vision
  • Asking powerful research questions that avoid bias
  • Competitive analysis frameworks and differentiating where it matters.
  • Tracking and testing leap-of-faith hypotheses
  • ... and more!

Through interactive discussions and hands-on activities, participants will better understand how these tools can enhance their strategic thinking and decision-making process.

Learn, question, and apply practical tools that can inform your startup journey.
