Firestarter and Market Validation Programs at Purdue Foundry

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

Carmel, Indiana., February 22, 2018- Dr. Rajesh Perianayagam, our Founder/CEO participated in Firestarter (6 weeks) and Market validation (6 weeks) programs from September- December 2017 at Purdue Foundry. Firestarter (formerly LaunchBox) helped us to find the value proposition of our idea. The program gave us an opportunity to explore potential markets, customers and financial models. This program gave us necessary information to understand the values in our idea and helped us continue moving forward.

Market Validation helped us to develop and validate our final business model with all nine sections of the Business Model Canvas through customer interviews. This document served as the foundation from which our final business plan was created.
