How to Build a Bulletproof Startup Class

Fort Lewis College has asked me to teach a class in Lean Business Methods.  This class will teach you the same methods taught at Stanford in their entrepreneurship program.  It runs 4 Wednesdays in February from 6pm until 8pm.

Learn 10 fast and cheap customer experiments to virtually guarantee the success of your new product.

Design your own customer oriented business model using lean business methods.  We will then iterate on our business models improving our way to product-market fit.

Get hands on experience with

  1. Lean Business Canvas
  2. Minimum Viable Products
  3. Metrics
  4. Basic Startup Financing

The class is guaranteed to be fun and lively, as we will be creating real business startups.  Bring your ideas or team-up with someone else in class.

The first class slides outline our understanding of lean startup methods and then describe best practices for Lean Business Canvas .
