Penn Center for Innovation (PCI) Ventures, in partnership with the NYC Regional Innovation Node (NYCRIN), held the first-ever PCI Lean LaunchPad course this summer.
The course Finale Showcase represents the culmination of the program where teams showcase their Lessons Learned via a 10-minute live presentation and a 2-minute video. The presentations showcase commercialization of technologies in the fields of robotics, cognitive science, and interactive education.
This six-week accelerator program uses the Lean Launchpad curriculum based on Steve Blank’s Customer Development methodology and Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas. As such, it demands that teams ‘Get out of the Building’, and spend the majority of their time talking to potential customers to discover how their technology could effectively solve customers’ unmet needs or pain points. This program helps nascent startups commercialize their technology and teaches how to think about market needs earlier in the process.
We are excited to invite you to watch the inaugural PCI Lean LaunchPad’s final presentations on Monday, August 4th from 2-5pm.
2:00-2:15 pm Welcome
2:15 - 3:30 pm Team Presentations (15 minutes total: 10 minute Lessons Learned presentation, 2 minute Lessons Learned video and 3 minutes of teaching team comment)
