Cincinnati Lean Startup Circle Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

Networking + presentation signup 

6pm-6:30pm — informal networking - meet some people, and sign up to present. You can ask for 2 to 20 minutes - content must be Lean Startup related. No reasonable proposal will be turned down. Be sure to pressure attendees into signing up to present :)


6:30-6:45pm — go around the room and everyone gets 10-20 seconds to introduce themselves.


6:45pm-? The best way to learn something is to teach it. This is an extremely supportive environment. Get practice at public speaking. Keep an eye on the clock; we keep things moving.

The organizers are prepared to step up and do presentations if signups are light, including introductions to Lean Startup + building canvases live — but c'mon community — step up and share what you're doing!

More networking + conversation

If there's time left after the presentation, connect with some more people through 8pm.

    It was great meeting everyone last night. Really enjoyed the opportunity to work on a canvas and get feedback and ideas.

    I referenced a video from Lean Startup Machine that does a great job quickly explaining the Lean Startup method, here's the link,

    There's a second video where he tests a hypothesis using his validation board,

    I found these helpful, hope you do, too.

    Very informative, very motivational... fantastic job Apps! It was great to meet the attendees and see how their ideas could be applied to a 'lean' model.

    Sorry I had to miss the second iteration of the Lean Business Model mapping exercise, but enjoyed and learned a great deal from the first. Hope to see many of you again.

    Apps, great job last night facilitating the group. Appreciate it, and I was wrong about the co-organizer. It is Andy and not Josh. Josh is a different meet-up!

    Hi All -
    Along the lines of Apps, thought I would pre-empt: Looking for a hardware expert/EE with iOS and/or UX skills to help me build a prototype. Also seeking input from business model experts.

    Hi everyone, I thought I would preempt the "what are you looking for?" question and say that I am looking for a software architect (consultant/1099) that has experience with NoSQL. If you know anyone, please let me know. Thanks! - Apps
