What people have said…

The real value from this course goes far beyond the excellent tools, techniques and concepts related to Developing Lean Startups. Within a couple days, you did a great job allowing participants to crystallize who they are, what they are there for, what they should do, and to prove them that for real tangible progress, focus and action are much more important than time. “
