HEC Paris in Qatar will host a masterclass on ‘Lean Startup vs Business Plan: What the Lean Startup has changed for founders and investors’, on October 6 at HEC Paris campus in Tornado Tower, Doha.
The session will be delivered by Sebastian Becker, HEC Paris associate professor of accounting and management control.
In addition to teaching Accounting and Management Control at HEC Paris, Prof, Becker also conducts Business Performance Management courses in the MBA, Executive MBA, MSc and PhD programmes.
He has also designed and built a new online course – ‘Managing the performance of a growing enterprise’ with Coursera in HEC Paris’s Online Master for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
“In recent years, new markets and business opportunities have opened up due to technological developments. In addition, business models, many of these exclusively or largely based on digital components, compete worldwide. Therefore, innovating fast and without spending too much time or resources until a business idea reaches some traction have become increasingly important skills to master,” Prof Becker said.
“Successful entrepreneurs around the world have come to use methods and tools around the lean startup philosophy. In this masterclass, attendees will get a taste for the skills necessary to use management tools for entrepreneurs that search for business models in direct, multi?sided, or marketplace types of settings,” he added.
