Steve Blank is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, having worked in 8 start-ups in two decades (with four IPOs). He currently works as an academic, teaching at Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia and NYU.

Blank is the co-inventor of the Lean Startup movement, a serial entrepreneur-turned-best selling author and educator who has changed the way startups are built, how entrepreneurship is taught, and how big companies and the U.S. government innovate.

He is the author of the startup bibles The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual, books that entrepreneurs of all stripes rely on to build successful ventures and corporate and government organisations use to deal with disruption. His Harvard Business Review cover story, Why the Lean Startup Changes Everything, explained how companies could use the Lean Startup to implement innovation at speed.

In addition to this article, other recent pieces in the Harvard Business Review include the shift in founder/investor relationships, When Founders Go To Far; and a piece about activist investors, Why GE’s Jeff Immelt Lost His Job: Disruption and Activist Investors.

In 2017 he was named on the Thinkers50 list of management thinkers for the second time.
