ASPIRE 3 STARTUP ACCELERATOR
JANUARY 24TH- MARCH 31ST, 2017
WEEK 2 TOPICS
Direct Cause, Indirect Cause & Leverage Points:
After defining the problem you wish to solve, It is time to dive deeper to determine the indirect causes related to your problem. Continue dissecting your initial problem until it cannot be broken down any further.
Validating your Assumptions with Evidence:
Research each direct and indirect cause for information that either confirms or denies your causal effect chain. Be careful not to prove your solution, instead stay focused on if the problem truly exists.
Determine your Leverage Point:
Now that you have completed your research, select your best causal chain and define what is your leverage point. Define the relationship between your initial problem, its direct and indirect causes, and finally your leverage point so that others will understand.
