Lean Challenge 2011


The success of the first annual competition was greater than we’d hoped for. ¬†Despite having less than a month from coming up with the idea to application deadlines for the competition, we had 146 teams enter and raised over $75,000 in cash and prizes.

Each participant generated a business model canvas, updated a progress blog, performed problem/solution interviews, ran experiments, validated assumptions, pivoted, reached out to advisers, and created an MVP.  Our 4 finalists gave 10 minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of question and answer in front of a sold out crowd for $75,000 dollars in cash and prizes.
