Will my Intellectual Property rights be protected when I discuss my ideas with the class?

This is an open class. There are no non-disclosures. All your presentations and Customer Discovery and Validation notes, Business Model Canvas, blogs and slides can, and more likely will, be made public.

This class is not an incubator. At times you will learn by seeing how previous classes solved the same problems by looking at their slides, notes and blogs.

Keep in mind that successful companies are less about the original idea and more about the learning, discovery and execution. (That’s the purpose of this class.) Therefore you must be prepared to share your ideas openly with the class. It is a forum for you to “bounce” your ideas off your peers.
