Concept Tools & Validation

The ECenter is building up a set of tools to help assist in the validation stages of an idea.

In the Co-Working Space at the ECenter, there are two computer stations (1 Mac/1 PC) that have licensed software to help you.

Currently this includes:

  • MS Office - Microsoft Office is a set of interrelated desktop applications, servers and services, collectively referred to as an office suite, for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
  • Balsamiq - Balsamiq is a rapid wireframing tool that helps you Work Faster & Smarter. It reproduces the experience of sketching on a whiteboard, but using a computer. Use it for websites and phone apps.
  • PhoneGap - An Adobe app design product, PhoneGap allows users to use existing web development skills to quickly make hybrid applications built with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Create experiences for multiple platforms with a single codebase so you can reach your audience no matter their device.
  • Xamarin - An app design product, build and deliver native Android, iOS, and Windows apps, using existing skills, teams, and code.
  • Interested in other programs? Let us know at

Ideas come "a dime a dozen,” as the old saying goes. To move ideas into action requires a thoughtful, structured approach. The ECenter offers to help you through your thought process for:

  • Customer validation
  • Financial model testing
  • Competition analysis guidance
