During the Fireside Chat of the AUTM 2015 Annual Meeting, serial entrepreneur Steve Blank discussed the relevance of the Lean Startup methodology to technology transfer. These principles have been applied successfully at several universities. While recognizing that going lean is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, this session provides a fresh perspective on standard technology transfer processes. Hear how Lean Startup Principles such as The Build-Measure-Learn Feedback Loop, The Minimum Viable Product and the Business Model/Value Proposition Canvases have worked for specific technology transfer offices.
