This episode features Steve Blank, father of modern entrepreneurship, founder of the Lean Startup movement and original Silicon Valley-er. Blank founded eight companies and authored two books about executing startup business models. Although he retired in 1999, he hasn't stopped spreading his knowledge and experiences by teaching entrepreneurship courses at Stanford, U.C. Berkeley and beyond — courses that have even been adopted by government.
