Course Description

The lean entrepreneurship movement has captivated Silicon Valley and entrepreneurs across the country. It’s provided an agile framework to develop the right product solution for a given target market. Each startup searches through iterative build-measure- learn cycles for that “product-market fit.” (We define product-market fit as a product that solves a real problem materially better than the competition for a viable customer segment.) We cover the best practices for these in my Lean Entrepreneurship  (45805) course.

 

A related and equally important question is: once you’ve achieved product-market fit, how do you scale? This course revolves around providing an experiential learning opportunity covering the best practices that help startups achieve scale.
