Steve Blank is an Adjunct Professor at Stanford and Senior Fellow for Innovation at Columbia University. He has been described as the Father of Modern Entrepreneurship. Credited with launching the Lean Startup movement and the curriculums for the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps and Hacking for Defense and Diplomacy, he’s changed how startups are built; how entrepreneurship is taught; how science is commercialized, and how companies and the government innovate.
Steve is the author of The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual which revolutionized how startups were built– and his May 2013 Harvard Business Review cover story redefined how large companies can innovate at speed.
“Founders have a view of where they see the world going, and how they are going to help it get there.”
In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, sponsored by Mastercard and Scotiabank, Steve Blank recognizes what happens when entrepreneurs see beyond the horizon and explains the methods that turn startups into companies with scalable and repeatable processes.
