Applying Lessons from Silicon Valley to Life Science Startups

POSTED on January 15, 2014

Steve Blank is a (mostly) successful entrepreneur, turned entrepreneurship author and teacher—he is widely considered an expert in launching successful technology companies. The National Science Foundation Innovation Corps is based on ideas developed by Steve Blank and his free online course How to Build a Startup. He calls his system “Lean Launchpad”. Over the last few months, he has been involved with an in-person Lean Launchpad for Life Sciences & Healthcare class offered at UCSF. His blog includes several entries describing the course content and lessons learned. It’s a must-read for anyone considering entering the bioscience start-up space.
