On this week’s Startup Shop Talk live show, we’re going to break down the top 10 ways to rapidly test a business idea.

We talk a lot on this channel about the strategic need for businesses to make appropriately-sized bets — those are the smartest bets available that are as small as they can be while still giving us validated learning. It’s about reducing risk and ensuring we’re chasing the right opportunities.

Whether you’re a team in a large enterprise looking to find the next big thing for your company using innovation, or you’re a solo founder of an early-stage startup just trying to find out whether you’re solving a problem worth solving, it’s about finding the smart, small way to run an experiment and confirm that it’s worth placing a larger bet.

This week’s all about experiments, so bring your questions, bring your advice, and hop on to join the discussion.
