Become familiar with the lean startup model, which is based on starting a company using an experimental business canvas instead of a traditional business plan. This multidisciplinary and multi-approach course will show you how to go against conventional wisdom in order to deliver business solutions that matter. Through a mixture of exercises, cases, lectures, and discussions, acquire a deeper understanding of the dynamics of, and barriers to, starting a business. Ultimately, learn to become a more effective conduit for the innovation that all organizations require to survive, regardless of the profession you pursue.
