Lean Launchpad for Healthcare and Life Sciences 3 CREDITS course begins July 11, 2018

The Lean Launchpad for Healthcare and Life Sciences teaches innovators, entrepreneurs, clinicians and scientists how to assess whether their idea or technology can serve as the basis for a new venture.

This class helps students and their teams with the following:
• Gathering data essential to customer purchases or end-user behavior before doing the science
• Defining clinical utility now, before spending millions of dollars
• Identifying financing vehicles before they’re needed
• Assessing regulatory risk before you design and build.
