Beckman Behavioral Biology B101
Lean Startup Workshop
Farzin Samadani, Co Founder at Curious Me
Christie Canaria, Program Manager at NCI SBIR Development Center
"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. Participants will also learn about funding sources available to launch their ventures, and be given the opportunity to meet one-on-one with an investor.
Day 1: February 10, 10AM-2PM
Day 2: February 17, 10AM-2PM
Lunch will be provided.
Space is limited so email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot today! Preference will be given to Caltech faculty, students, & post-docs.
