How to Build a Startup – Lean Launchpad Course – Steve Blank + Udacity (free to enroll)
The purpose of the app is to allow individuals to push a business idea out to their network (very early in the process) in order to determine whether the idea has merit, learn about potential competitors, and gain insights into what should be changed. Think about it as the earliest of earliest steps in terms of launching a startup. The goal is to help entrepreneurs get their idea right even before they start building an MVP.
