This Wednesday evening saw the very first meetup with 9 regional non-funded early-stage startups attending the very first Lean Launchpad Düsseldorf powered by PwC.
Here are some impressions from our first meetup:
About the Lean Launchpad Program
The Lean Launchpad (LLP) is a highly experiential educational program created by the father of the Lean Startup, Steve Blank at Standford and Berkeley. It helps startup founders gain a crucial base of entrepreneurial skills and knowledge to be better prepared and to build more successful startups.
It’s the world’s premier pre-accelerator program rooted in the scientific methodology, driven by mentors and unique educational content aims to make early-stage startup ready for applying to an accelerator, a first seed investment round, setting them off on a healthy self-financed (bootstrapped) path or launching their first Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
About the LLP Methodology
This 5 weeks version of the LLP program consists of five evening meetups moderated by an LLP Educator with hands-on homework between each class.
The LLP Educator will also be available online (Skype, mobile, email) to mentor you and clarify issues that come up in between classes.
Half of the day consists of lectures that outline the core concepts during class, in the second half the students will get to apply and practice the core concepts of the lecture of the day and prepare for their homework assignments.
In addition a lot of the time is spent outside of the classroom doing practical, hands-on homework in between, learning outside the classroom, learning in the the actual market.
