The Telos PI Program
How to go from idea to validated product startup in just 10 weeks
The path of any entrepreneur to research, design, develop, and launch a product is full of twists, turns, distractions, failures, hard work, and more failures.
To succeed you must truly understand your customer's wants & needs, find a real gap in the market, keep yourself motivated and accountable, and find a sounding board of like-minded people & be ready to learn, learn, learn.
Knowing how scary it is to try anything new without proper guidance, we have designed a process and a program to help any new product entrepreneur, especially those transitioning from 9-5, on how to remove the risks and ease into the entrepreneurial world. We call this process the 'Product Invention Program'
Introducing the Telos Product Invention (PI) Program

Regardless of your past experience, size of your idea, or app development knowledge… The Telos PIP is here to give you the blueprint to building a successful product business. All without wasting money on expensive market research, wasting time on learning specific design skills, or investing in new and confusing technology.

What our clients are saying:
The PI Program Process
Week 1: Understand your product development lifecycle
While we cannot tell you how long your journey is, we can teach you what a typical product lifecycle looks like.
We will show you typical product lifecycle frameworks and then help you slot your idea into the right framework.
Week 2: Defining your product vision
Clarity of communication is key to product success and clarity starts with a well-articulated, well-understood & well-tested product vision.
We will help you describe the future state of your product, the main problems that it solves, and articulate some of the ways that you see it appearing in the market.
Week 3: Defining your personal brand & product objectives
New product development is an entrepreneur's game and when your new product is still in development, YOU are the product that customers, stakeholders, and investors will buy into.
We will walk you through exercises to help you better understand your personal brand, goals, and objectives, and define ways to personally grow and make the most of what you have got.
Week 4: Competitive and industry landscapes
Around 15% of new products fail because of 'right product, wrong time' - This week is our insurance policy against 'wrong-time' failures.
We will cast a wide net of research to understand current context of your marketplace, value chain, and supply chain, then critically analyse the impacts of your product introduction.
Week 5: Generating a killer value proposition
This week we understand what problems our products solves for users and defining what value it REALLY gives to our customer.
We will put ourselves in their shoes and imagine what else is happening at the time of purchasing, using, or interacting with our product and therefore prioritise what are the critical features of our solution.
Week 6: Customer research interviews & surveys
Things get real from here - now is the time to list your riskiest assumptions and test through real customer feedback.
We'll help you find possible contacts through to implementing techniques for interviewing, observice and surveying prospective customers, both online and offline.
Week 7: Define your user personas and user journeys
Now that you have lots of great customer insights, it is time to list the characteristics of your ideal customers and decide how & when they will interact with your product.
We will take you step-by-step through simple techniques to further empathise with and define your customer as personas, then we'll outline their journeys before, during, and after using your product.
Week 8: Design your product user-flows, mock-ups & landing page
Don't worry - you don't need to be a designer or have any design experience.
We'll help you turn your user journeys into basic mock-ups either in Miro or with pen and paper, then help you transform them into screen-flow examples that you can showcase your idea or tell a story with.
Week 9: Test and validate
It's crunch time - time to test your value proposition and your product idea. This week you'll get back out in front of prospective users for a round of testing, feedback, and validation.
We'll help you design feedback sessions to test your prototype and user flows, teach you concepts to decide the best features, and help you create your own product landing page to trial some marketing and validate your pricing and value proposition.
Week 10: Draft your business model & business case
Designing a business model helps plan how to best develop your product, estimate operating costs and profits, and ultimately provide a decision to develop or pivot your idea.
You will learn the basics of how to define your business models, different ways to find estimates from delivery partners, how to calculate costs and revenue, and give you the data to decide if you should develop or pivot your idea.
