Startup Boot Camp

Hacker Ferret Software participated in the USC Tech Incubator’s Startup Launchpad program and from that has a project on the way.

LaunchPad “Learn by Doing”

This hands-on immersion program is based on the principles of the lean startup made popular by Steve Blank and Eric Ries. Participants are taught that their ideas are a set of assumptions that need to be tested. You bring the ideas – we provide the framework, ask questions, and hold you accountable.
