The Lean Startup - WNY is a group of smart and driven high-tech entrepreneurs that are interested in learning how to discover customers and build products they want using the revolutionary new Lean Startup and Customer Development principles first developed by Steve Blank and refined by Eric Ries.
Lean Startups (which can include for profit and not for profit organizations, new product/innovation organizations within larger companies and even government agencies) achieve success faster than most because they get out of the building to talk to customers, validate business model assumptions as quickly and cheaply as possible, use agile development to decrease time to market and leverage continuous deployment to learn as fast as possible.
Our mission attracts the brightest entrepreneurs in Western New York and Southern Onterio and beyond and help them reduce risk and find a path to success. Our features authors include Eric Ries, Ash Maurya, Steve Blank, and Alexander Osterwalder.
The Lean Startup is a movement that is transforming the way new products are built and launched!
