  1. What is your passion in life and what drives you?

Doing something, no matter how small (or big!) every day to make the world a better place for the people and other living creatures around me.

  1. Why did you choose to design your micro-course?

I’m excited about the opportunity to help students acquire the skills and tools they need to think creatively and act effectively to change the world.

  1. What do you expect people who take it to be able to do after taking it?

My hope is that students will be inspired by lean startup principles and understand how those principles can help them innovate effectively to make the world a better place. Although this micro-course is more of an introduction to the ideas than a full tutorial, I also hope that students will feel confident to start experimenting with using the methodology in their work.
