This course explores what lean start-ups are and emerging best-practices by entrepreneurs in managing them. Ideas on how best to start a new business or non-profit project have changed a lot in recent years. This course relies on several different learning methods--new graphic online lecture material, case studies of start-ups, direct student involvement in start-up projects, and a variety of reading materials. The projects will be a mix of for profit and not-for-profit. Class sessions will be devoted to discussing issues encountered outside class and case study discussions, not lectures. The course is a start-up itself so will learn and evolve as it goes along.

12:00pm-1:50pm on Wednesday (Feb 1, 2016 to May 20, 2016)
