Lean LaunchPad Educators Program

Published: (Updated: ) in Lean LaunchPad, NYU ITP, , by .

I’m at the Lean LaunchPad Educators Program – Steve Blank’s entrepreneurship curriculum delivered to 90+ educators around the world. I’m here thanks to the efforts of NYU to cultivate entrepreneurship across the school, with ITP as a potentially ideal place to adopt the methods.

We are all entrepreneurship-leaning educators at the grad and undergrad level, and there are a number of regional accelerators and incubators who teach methods. The best components of this program: the course materials, curriculum, handbooks for teaching are all available publicly, with back up video support and class room examples. Underwritten by the NCIIA, a not for profit organization that has also funded this approach to be delivered to National Science Foundation grantees. It is available here: Lean LaunchPad Educators Program.

But the richest conversations are occurring amongst participants who have adopted or are considering a Lean LaunchPad approach. Hopefully today we will get into the following topics:

Looking forward to today’s discussions.
