Lean platform business design
The course provides a realistic and hands-on experience on creating a software-based product orservice in a high scalability startup context. The focus is on ideas that have a platform business characteristic.
Participants will work in teams and use the lean startup process to turn ideas into practice. During the course the participants will work on idea generation, elaborate the idea into a product and sketch a business around the product. The products are based on web technologies, cloud services and mobile platforms. The used tools and platforms will be mostly new to course participants, requiring an active learning attitude.
The teams will build the software-based products using agilish development process, tools and practices to rapidly iterate the products into something the customers will use.
The primary mode of teaching is weekly team mentoring and monthly team progress presentations.
