Who really runs the boat...Jon or Otis?
A contrarian view and ideas on how to be a successful startup in CLE/NEO without drinking the coolaid and signing a bad deal because you're made to think it is your only option. I will also introduce you to the best and brightest venture talent around (if you have the right stuff), many of whom only work outside this region because our econ dev tools here don't have a clue.
The boat is a great place to be...in the Summer ;-) Just kidding as they keep it warm in the Winter with all their smart brains. Oh, and working with Chezy is just that, Chezy!
Been there done that. On my way to making every mistake possible. Joined because Greg Svitak always has some microbrew I can pilfer from him.
Need more critical mass of ventures using Lean so we can compare notes. Not sure how we get to this point. Cleveland is Cleveland.
