    2. 2. GeHng  out  of  the  building  “Customer  Development  is  the  process  of  how  you  get  out  of  the  building  and  search  for  the  model.  Customer  Development  is  designed  so  that  you  the  founder(s)  gather  first  hand  experience  about  customer  and  market  needs.”  SteveBlank.com,  5/13/2010  www.slideshare.com/lanehalley   License:  Creave  Commons  A^ribuon-­‐Share  Alike  www.luxr.co   2   3.0  United  States

    4. 4.
