THE RESOURCES:
MIT Sloan’s offering of technology, business, and design courses enabled lark to take form. We relied upon a combination of resources to take lark from an idea to a successful company. We bootstrapped early on from the winnings of the MIT $100K Competition, received helpful advice and guidance from mentors, and took classes that helped us write a business plan, price our products, and leverage data analytics.
