Mentoring Lean healthcare startups @ UCSF. Fascinating.

I am a mentor at present in Steve Blanks course at UCSF on lean startup methodology for healthcare startups. It’s fascinating to see the methodology being deployed simultaneously across a whole cohort of startups.

The main takeaway is just how rapidly the “get out of the building” approach leads to important insights by the entrepreneur. The second takeaway for me is that this cohort approach, including a lot of learning from peers, works extremely well.

Steve Blank has been writing a series of posts about the course. Here is the latest post.

I recommend the whole series.
