Cohort: 2014 Washington, DC Metro Area
Participating teams will:
"I think the program's 'content elements,' (i.e., a scientific approach to customer discovery framed within the construct of the business model canvas) provide a potentially transformative perspective to propagation of innovation."
"The overall [BMC] experience is valuable. It is helpful to be forced out of one's comfort zone and to put much more emphasis on customers than how cool our ideas are."
"What it has been impacting positively has been the perspective on taking on a couple of the elements of my job outside of this, including just treating the management of my project, the expansion of my project, and looking at it from a start-up perspective."
"I actually feel that I am learning something that I can apply to challenges at my work outside of being a partner and a teammate to my friends on this project. So it's been very beneficial to learn a start-up approach to mapping out a new project."
"Having to conduct so many interviews was incredibly helpful. As we ran out of people to talk to, we were forced to get opinions from people we wouldn't have normally thought to talk to."
