Defining and Validating Your Business Model

Ideas into Action Workshop Series

  • January 11, 2023 6:00pm - 8:00pm

A new venture’s business model defines how it brings together available technology, market and business opportunities, as well as how it plans to make money—and how much. 

Tim Keller, chief operating officer of Davis-based medical device startup AmCyt and top prize winner of the 2008 Big Bang! Business Competition, will discuss how to create a viable business model. 

Why you should attend:

Ideas into Action workshops teach the knowledge and skills needed to move from concept to company—and to effectively compete in the annual UC Davis Big Bang! Business Competition.

Even if you don’t wish to become an entrepreneur, the leadership skills you learn through the Ideas into Action workshop series and the Big Bang! will translate into whatever career path you chose. You'll learn to:

  • Solve complex problems
  • Be a part of and effectively lead cross-functional and cross-cultural teams
  • Make connections and build your network
  • Thrive in challenging times

The Ideas into Action workshop series is presented by the UC Davis Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
