Entrepreneurship for Engineers

It was an absolute treat to deliver this lecture on Business Models and Lean Startups with uOttawa Engineers and Computer Scientists!

This (abridged) video covers the vital entrepreneurship topics for our times: business model generation, lean startup methodology, customer development, competition and the pitch. Maybe next time, we will tackle distribution on a deeper level, along with the topic of equity.

The tools of entrepreneurship instill our engineers with a unique and important capability: personally, it prevents stagnation and promotes growth ; professionally, we depend on innovation for our future.

Hope you enjoy!

    Hello Adam – Rob tipped me to your video, very nice work! Just a suggestion, maybe splitting the video up into topical chapters would let viewers decide where to invest their time. Loved the message and the superb visuals! You’re a master storyteller!

      Much appreciated, Ms. Townsend! A few people have been asking about chapters, good idea, working on it!

    Inspiring indeed there’s a couple of books I’ll be reading after this presentation lol. I agree with spliting the video into topical chapters which makes it easy for me to remember where to jump to when revisioning it although the animations help remembering I’m visual ;) Great presentation

      Thanks, Vincent – This summer, I’m forming a group to execute some of the ideas in TSOM; as an enterprising young man, you may wish to join!
