    There was interest in non-technical startups in our discussion on Sunday. I just ran across this book which my address those interests: http://100startup.com/

    My kids haven't left to go back to Davis so probably be there about 2:30. Will Steve Blank be speaking again on the Start-ups topic? I'm missing this unfortunately.

    Happy New Year! Do you enjoy the video lectures of "how to build a startup?" Before coming to the study group, please at least watch:

    "Get out of the building (customer development process)"
    https://www.udacity.com/course/viewer#!/c-ep245/l[masked]/m[masked]

    "Minimum viable product"
    https://www.udacity.com/course/viewer#!/c-ep245/l[masked]/m[masked]

    These two concepts are gist of the class. If you have experience in gathering information from customers and making initial features as minimum as possible, please share with us.

    See you Sunday afternoon!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
