Test Drive is an opportunity for startup businesses to exhibit their latest business idea at one or several festivals in the Asheville area to gain important feedback on how to move their business forward.
If you haven’t already, learn more about the Test Drive requirements and program details here.
If you are interested in testing out your new business idea in the Test Drive tent and you meet the specified requirements, join us at one of our Prep Workshops.
In these Prep Workshop sessions, a Mountain BizWorks business coach will work with you and a cohort of fellow Test Drivers to design a meaningful Test Drive experience. The sessions will cover festival logistics, how to effectively gather market feedback, crafting your exhibitor experience, and festival marketing. After the completion of this session, you’ll be matched with a business coach to walk you through the rest of the program steps.
This workshop will only be offered two times this year, so sign up while you can!
