    Good morning,

    We are looking for an additional 4-5 Entrepreneurship Professors to pilot www.100steps2startup.com in the classroom for the Winter/Spring 2020 semester. 100 Steps 2 Startup is an experiential learning program based on the Lean Startup. 100 Steps 2 Startup consists of videos and exercises designed to lead the student from ideation to MVP. It is suitable for undergrad and graduate level students with no prior experience. 
    At RYERSON we use 100 Steps 2 Startup in both our "new venture creation" course and our revised "business plan" course. Both courses leverage experiential learning, and the flipped classroom pedagogy, to engage students in the entrepreneurial process. Learning through doing. The results are remarkable with more than 90% of students reporting an increase in their own entrepreneurship capacity.

    You can see a sample step here: http://www.100steps2startup.com/sample/
    You can watch real students sharing their reflections here (scroll down to the bottom): http://www.100steps2startup.com/press-testimonials/

    If you are trying to:
    • inject entrepreneurship into the wider campus
    • leverage a framework that works for startups, small business ventures and social entrepreneurship 
    • upgrade the static business plan course to the 21st century dynamic lean methodology 
    • provide a safe, controlled opportunity for students to experience entrepreneurship, or
    • increase their entrepreneurial capacity 
    Then please contact me directly:  sean.wise@ryerson.ca
     
    Onward and upward,
