So What Happened???
• Dals Starting Lean course helps students transform business ideas into opportunities: Last semester, Dalhousie Universitys Faculty of Management launched a new course called Starting Lean, open to students who had a business idea they wanted to develop. The course uses the Lean LaunchPad model developed by a University of California Berkeley professor, who says the goal is to teach students "the art, science and strategy of entrepreneurship that will forever change how they view early stage ventures." In the Dal course, students were divided into teams of 4 and attended their lectures online (hosted on the Udacity platform) prior to class, conducted market validation, and then applied what they learned through weekly in-class presentations based on developing their business models canvas. Starting Lean is already paying off for many of the students. As of last month, 2 of the teams have been accepted into the 5-month Propel ICT Launch 36 accelerator program, and 3 have received offers of development money and/or angel investment.
