"The minimum viable product is that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort." -Eric Ries
Thousands of students have gone through the Lean Startup Machine workshops, where hundreds of teams developed and tested their minimum viable products (MVPs). Drawing on these examples and theoretical foundations from Eric Ries, Brant Cooper, Steve Blank, and others, this class will focus on dissecting how an MVP should be planned and executed to get the most effective and efficient learnings for your startup.
This class is designed for a small (6 students) seminar format, where we will provide consultative analysis for each interested student's projects.
Learn successful MVPs from Lean Startup Machine:
While you can learn this material in the abstract, ideally you are currently working on a startup or have worked on a startup in the past.
We limit the class to 6 attendees, so that we will be able to analyze and provide recommendations for each student's project.
