Join us in the morning for coffee with a Catalyst. Catalysts help ATDC entrepreneurs build successful technology companies through coaching. This event is open to the public and welcomes entrepreneurs from concept-stage and beyond. You do not need to be an ATDC member to join, but this is a great opportunity to see if ATDC membership could help you advance your startup. Other events that are open to the public are the ATDC Info Session and Entrepreneurs' Night.
Please absolutely no service providers. Coffee with a Catalyst is only for entrepreneurs thinking about and/or doing a startup. This is not a sales networking opportunity.

A talented and diverse group, ATDC Signature entrepreneurs are always willing to help their peers by sharing their first-hand experiences. The CEO Roundtables play an important part in the ATDC Signature experience and are often cited as one of the biggest benefits of being an ATDC Signature company.
Every week, ATDC Signature CEOs gather for peer-to-peer networking and peer learning. The 'closed door' roundtables are designed to enable ATDC entrepreneurs to discuss their business and technology challenges, successes, and failures.
This event is for ATDC Signature CEOs only and is not open to the public.

Most concept-stage startups fail because they focus more on how to deliver a product than on the needs of people buying it. This course provides a concentrated overview of the Customer Development Process, Business Model Canvas and Minimal Viable Product. By understanding customers, startups reduce the risk of failure. This class is the first in the Customer Discovery Badge Program, and it should be followed with Customer Discovery Tools.
You are welcome to bring your own lunch.
This course is a prerequisite for Customer Discovery Tools and Customer Discovery Lab. You are only required to take it once.

Does your startup have physical products in its vision? Does it face the 'build it' challenge? Does it need to build prototypes? Products? Does it need to build manufacturing processes? Does it need support or access to big ticket tooling and facilities in order to build? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then the Product Circle may be for you. Come and participate in this discussion among peers, whether your product is in the idea stage or has already entered the market. This circle is also an excellent entry point to learn about the myriad of lab facilities available at Georgia Tech for use by startups.
