How do startups think? Come learn the fundamentals of “startup thinking” and see how this can be put into practice in your library. This active learning session focuses on key lean startup concepts such as customer development, the business model canvas, the value proposition, the build-measure-learn cycle, and minimum viable product. It also shares the results of the world’s first Start Up Weekend for Libraries held earlier this year. You’ll be surprised at the process and thinking from that event which developed interesting new library services and products at that event!
