1 LEAN ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROJECT Academic Year Instructors: João Trigo Roza and Carla Wadewitz Course Description: Starting any new business is difficult. The probabilities of success are historically low. According to the Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE - Institute for National Statistics of Portugal), only 52% of new businesses in Portugal survive until their second year. Research on new product success suggests it takes 58 new product ideas to deliver a single successful new product or service. Organisations burn billions of dollars as they try to force their new products into markets often with disappointing results. Time and time again however, they return to the same processes that produce market failure. This does not mean the product or service fails to work as intended. Usually, competent organisations produce products and services that meet technical specifications and work as intended. Most failures occur because not enough potential customers want to buy the product or service at a profitable price. This course will present a new approach to starting a business that can significantly increase the chances of success. The main concept is simple but very powerful: before starting a business we have to develop its customers. This course is based on the Business Model Canvas approach proposed by Alex Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur. It will also have students discover the concept of Lean Startup divulged by Eric Ries; and the central concept of Client discovery and Validation introduced by Steve Blank. After selecting an idea and designing the Business Model, each group of students will embark on a journey of defining and testing the different hypothesis that support the Business Model. Along the way it s possible that the original idea will change as a result of lessons learned through interaction with potential customers.

2 The course will end with the presentation of a Business Plan by each team in the form of an Investment Pitch. Course Content: This course is structured around five different phases: 1) The Ideation Phase, dedicated to discussing how to find and evaluate business Ideas; 2) The Design Phase, during which we will create the Business Model related to each team s idea; 3) The Validation Phase, composed of different steps dedicated to validating the components of the Business Model and adjusting in accordance with the results of the tests; 4) The Planning Phase, during which we will put together all the chapters of a Business Plan; 5) The Pitching Phase, consisting of creating and delivering the Investment Pitch. Course Objectives: The main learning objectives are: Improving the ability to spot and evaluate opportunities for a new business venture; Thinking in a creative and critical way and solving problems in highly unstructured circumstances; Acquiring the concepts and attitude necessary for business entrepreneurship; Examining a business model as a whole, rather than concentrating separately on its functional aspects; Learning the importance of validating the idea and the team before creating a business;

3 Communicating effectively through presentations and in writing; Experiencing the benefits of effective teamwork and of peer-group review and feed-back throughout the planning phases of a new business venture. Grading: Grades will be assessed in conformity with the business plan and the pitch deck quality, the partial and final presentations, as well as with the quality of individual class participation. There will be no final exam. However, it is possible that there will be individual and group in-class graded exercises. Grades will be determined by: 1. Group grade (75%): a) Intermediate Presentations (25%); b) Business Model Blog and Business Plan (25%); c) Pitch Deck + Investment Pitch Presentation (25%). 2. Individual grade (25%): d) Individual class participation and in class performance (15%); e) Individual contribution to the team s work (blind peer evaluation (10%). More details on the group and individual required activities will be provided in class. COURSE ACTIVITIES: THE BUSINESS PLAN DEVELOPMENT Course participants are required to form teams of four students whose talents, skills and knowledge are complementary. We will discuss how to set up the teams in class. Classes will be highly interactive and students are expected to bring their own contributions to class.

4 Extensive team work outside of class is an essential part of this course. Other factors which are extremely relevant to your team s functioning are the management and coordination of group effort by appropriate means (telephone, e- mail, Skype, meetings, etc.). Each team will produce an original and comprehensive Business Plan (BP) and an Investment Pitch Deck (PD) as its major final product and will make periodical presentations of its progress in class. The content and organization of the BP and PD will be discussed in class. Important Note: If your business development plan has been the subject of class projects in other classes, it is your responsibility to inform the instructor, and to explain how the work performed for this class will be original. Intermediate submission requirements: Each team will have to submit, at due dates to be announced, intermediate parts of its BP. Teams will be required to illustrate some of the intermediate parts to the class. Feedback will not be provided after the turn in of the assignment, but after the planned intermediate presentations. In fact, the presentation is considered part of the assignment and it is necessary in order to clarify issues not fully reviewed in the written document. Failing to submit intermediate assignments at due dates will negatively affect the final evaluation of the team s BP. In order to pass this course, you must: achieve a composite mark of at least 10; and make a satisfactory attempt at all assessment tasks. Investment Pitch Presentation: Teams will make a formal presentation of the final Investment Pitch during the exam weeks. Bibliography:
