What do you hope to learn from this group?

Who really runs the boat...Jon or Otis?

What can you bring to this group?

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.

What startup experience (good or bad) can you share?

The boat is a great place to 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.

What Douglas C. is saying about this Meetup Group

Need more critical mass of ventures using Lean so we can compare notes. Not sure how we get to this point. Cleveland is Cleveland.
