This class will focus on skills needed to identify and validate, using the lean startup approach, market opportunities that can be addressed by technology solutions. Students will organize into teams, possibly with members outside the class, to pursue these opportunities and will present their results to a panel of experts and entrepreneurs at the end of the semester. Promising teams from the class will receive support to launch their ventures.
