Go Lean or Go Home

Mital Patel and John Austin are launching a new program called Triangle NEXT which will be a weekly course to teach Steve Blank’s Lean Launchpad class.

Target audience: Early stage tech startup / founders that have a product + a team, but need to take their customer development (more customers, more paying customers) to the NEXT level.
How: Steve Blank’s Udacity Lean Launchpad class + live local mentors

When: Weekly on Wednesdays  6pm-9pm starting September 11th @ The American Underground.
Price:  $99 – $199 / person. Participants need to have some buy in, but we’ll have a fair amount of pizza, beer and other tangible value as well. We’re also looking for sponsors to help keep the price down.
Why: After NEXT, attendees can expect to be more prepared for an accelerator (like The Startup Factory) or to more realistically be able to raise a seed round, or be able to run a profitable company.
…Accelerators like NEXT because it breeds more and stronger potential teams
…Investors like NEXT because it breeds companies with more / better paying customers / revenue
