Notes
  • I have spent the past two weekends supporting undergraduates in “ideal’ and early stage “concept” statewide and regional competitions as one way to provide nascent entrepreneurs with early feedback on to speed up the discovery process and include users or stakeholders in the validation process. Your slides should be part of the entrepreneurial curriculum.
