The Venture Bus Morocco – Day 3

We kicked-off the third day of the Morocco Venture Bus with a problem definition workshop where all teams defined problems they want to address by their innovative solutions. On the way from Taliouine to Ouarzazat teams started brainstorming on the solutions which will be then turned into their companies. After a quick lunch in the local restaurant the bus stopped at the Ouarzazate Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services in Morocco. Widad Laabadi from the Ministère de l’énergie,des mines, de l’eau et de l’environnement presented local environmental project such as Ouarzazate Solar Power Station. Participants had an opportunity to ask questions and also get feedback on their solutions from locals. In the afternoon, mentors (Alexander Fechtner, Hatem EL-SHAMMAA, Wolfgang von Geramb, and Rida Chahoud) hosted 3 workshops on the Business Model Canvas, Lean Principles, and Prototyping. Dinner in the Hotel La Vallée 3* was followed by the pitching round where participants got the pitch their business plans for the first time in front of the mentors, who also gave them feedback.
