The odds for a successful launch of a new enterprise – whether it’s a tech start-up, a small business, or an initiative within a large corporation – are, historically, not great. Recently a new methodology has emerged that can make the process of starting a company or launching a new product less risky and even prime a business for investment.
It’s called “lean start-up,” and although just a few years old, its concepts have quickly taken root and proven their effectiveness in the start-up world, and business schools have already begun adapting their curricula to teach them.
On Monday, Aug. 11 we’ll hear from Mary Tapolsky Director of Technology Commercialization and Program Administration for Nucleus about the key steps to build a successful start-up using the Lean LaunchPad approach. She’ll give a brief overview of the technique and discuss how to create a more successful business while using less up-front capital.
She’ll also talk about the upcoming Nucleus LaunchIt Lean Start-Up Fall training program and some potential sources of funding or reimbursement that are available.
Join us at 8 a.m. on Monday, August 11 at iHub, and thanks again to Heine Bros for the coffee and to Nucleus for letting us use their iHub facility.
