I-Corps Lean Startup Workshop

I-Corps Lean Startup Workshop

February 2 & 9, 2018 (10:00-2:00 pm, Avery Library)

"Why do 75% of startups fail?" "How does a technology turn into a business?"

"What makes a successful business model?"

"Where can you find the capital to bring your innovations to market?"

If you've ever asked these questions then sign up today for the Lean Startup Workshop! This 2-day workshop is based on the Lean LaunchPad curriculum developed out of Stanford University. Participants will be taught the basics of proposing a business opportunity in the form of a "hypothesis" about a need in the market, and how to test those hypotheses. Teams that complete this course and receive instructor endorsement may qualify for the National I-Corps program which includes a $50k grant for customer discovery. Teams that complete the national program have a much higher funding rate, including SBIR grants and investment.

Speaker Farzin Samadani, Co-founder of Curious Me
