About Steve Blank

Not one of two, but eight companies are on his list. Eight challenges leading to two significant implosions, one massive “ bubble” home run, several “base hits” and an immense learning experience! After 21 years of building companies, Steve retired and started looking back. He came to his major insight that start-ups are not small versions of large companies. This new way of looking at start-ups is currently reshaping the way start-ups are built and how entrepreneurship is taught.

“Large companies execute business models, start-ups search for them” - S. Blank

Therefore start-ups need their own tools! Steve designed the Customer Development methodology and this spawned the Lean Start-up movement all over the world. He wrote several books on this topic and he shares his views with entrepreneurs, investors and established companies in his blog,

Steve Blank teaches Customer Development and entrepreneurship at Stanford University, U.C. Berkeley Haas Business School and Columbia University, and is visiting professor at Universities throughout the world.

“I might well have been voted “least likely to succeed” in my New York City high school class.” - S. Blank


Steve received a lot of awards and accolades, and he loves sharing his experiences with young entrepreneurs and students.
