IN-LA Team Requirements

ZAP! introduces participants to the Lean Startup methodology and techniques to direct customer discovery through field interviews. Participants are required to conduct at least five customer interviews; the two sessions are separated by a 7-30 day window to allow time for the interviews. Selected participants who complete the program may participate in special events organized by IN-LA.
