    Steve Blank Speaker Biography

    Steve Blank is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, having worked in 8 start-ups in two decades (with four IPOs). He currently works as an academic, teaching at Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia and NYU.

    Blank is the co-inventor of the Lean Startup movement, a serial entrepreneur-turned-best selling author and educator who has changed the way startups are built, how entrepreneurship is taught, and how big companies and the U.S. government innovate.

    He is the author of the startup bibles The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual, books that entrepreneurs of all stripes rely on to build successful ventures and corporate and government organisations use to deal with disruption. His Harvard Business Review cover story, Why the Lean Startup Changes Everything, explained how companies could use the Lean Startup to implement innovation at speed. He is also the author of When Founders Go To Far; and a piece about activist investors, Why GE’s Jeff Immelt Lost His Job: Disruption and Activist Investors.

    Steve is widely recognized as a thought leader on startups and innovation. Named to the Thinkers50 list of top management thinkers and recognized by the Harvard Business Review as one of 12 Masters of Innovation, Steve is also Senior Fellow for Entrepreneurship at Columbia University.

    Steve explains why innovation inside an existing company or the government is different from building a startup, highlighting the different tools and mindsets needed to be a successful innovator or entrepreneur.

    How every federal research agency adopted Lean Startup methods to commercialize science.

    Silicon Valley’s role as an entrepreneurial powerhouse has its roots in the Cold War, not a Palo Alto garage. Steve explains how the Silicon Valley came to be and how you can create an entrepreneurial ecosystem in your region.
