The Introduction to Customer Discovery course is a taste of the Lean LaunchPad method to give faculty the basic knowledge of how to properly conduct customer discovery interviews; the first step in the commercialization process. This course covers the two main concepts in I-Corps: value propositions and customer segments. By defining what these two concepts mean as it relates to a given technology, it provides the framework that any faculty member will need to go on to the National I-Corps program.
The finale event for the ICD course at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids is set for Oct. 14.
Programs are co-hosted at institutions around the state of Michigan made possible through a grant by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. These programs are open to U-M faculty and PhD/Postdoc students to attend.
