Student teams apply design thinking to develop a product idea and learn to use business model generation and customer development techniques to test and validate their business model through multiple interviews with potential customers, strategic partners, and others. Each set of interviews leads to strategic decisions that guide the teams closer to understanding the potential of their idea to become a sustainable business. Prerequisite: junior or senior standing.
