I've begun teaching a class at CCA called Designer as Founder. Having made that transition myself, and with the rise of The Designer Fund and designer as key advantage being touted by folks like 500 startups, it's time for designers to become full partners in the relationship with engineers and business folks. Thus I'm teaching using the Lean Launchpad as a base. This is the first of what will be a series. This class is VERY lecture-light, so see blog posts on eleganthack.com for full information.
