Learning outcomes

To provide an experimental learning opportunity showing how technical and business people together in teams turn business ideas into viable products and services and eventually startup businesses. To put software engineering skills into practice in a real-life project.
After the course the student will have a real experience of a customer need and business driven innovation project.


The course provides a realistic and hands-on experience on creating a software-based product/service in a high growth startup context. Participants will work in teams and use the lean startup process to turn ideas into practice. During the course the participants will work on idea generation to get started, customer development to elaborate the idea into a product that has a market, and business model design to build a business around the product. On the engineering side, the teams will build the software-based products using agilish development process, tools and practices to rapidly iterate the products into something the customers will use. The products are based on web technologies, cloud services and mobile platforms. The used tools and platforms will be mostly new to course participants, requiring an active learning attitude. The course also gives an intense teamwork experience that will help to understand the value of modern teamwork tools, transparency, taking and sharing responsibility, commitments and accountability. The course will also familiarize the participants with the local startup communities. The primary mode of teaching is weekly team mentoring and monthly team progress presentations.
