The virtual program train keeps on a-chuggin’.

In partnership with University of Minnesota MIN-Corps, Launch Minnesota has announced a virtual Value Proposition Design, a free, Lean Startup course designed to help tech entrepreneurs transform innovation into a successful business.

The program will be offered quarterly and provide tech entrepreneurs with valuable education in several categories including product-market fit, customer discovery, navigating the path to commercialization, and more. Participants will also receive a certification in Value Proposition Design upon completion of the requirements and extensive preparation for seeking funding.

The first cohort, starting April 22, will meet online from 4-6 p.m. every other Wednesday (the full schedule is below). If you think your business is the right fit, registration is open.
