Vision-RealityThe week before I started at Harvard Innovation Lab, I was there as a guest lecturer – giving a talk on How to Build Your MVP to a bunch of Harvard undergrads who were working on creating – for many – their very 1st startups.

I wanted to show them that they didn’t have to (in fact, shouldn’t!) just go off and build some big product. Instead, start small, get a little something out there, see how people react. Even better, talk to the people you think are your target audience – what problems do they have? How are they solving those problems today?

Here are my slides from that presentation and stay tuned… I’ll follow up with a post walking through the MVP Examples I give here.
