Startup Lessons Learned - Boston (Simulcast)

Startup Lessons Learned is the first event designed to unite those interested in what it takes to succeed in building a lean startup. The goal for this event is to give practitioners and students of the lean startup methodology the opportunity to hear insights from leaders in embracing and deploying the core principles of the lean startup methodology. The day-long event will feature a mix of panels and talks focused on the key challenges and issues that technical and market-facing people at startups need to understand in order to succeed in building successful lean startups.

    I usually can't sit through simulcasts for more than 30-60 minutes... But this was a first. This was about 9 hours and I enjoyed the entire thing!

    This was my first meetup and I learnt it a lot. I have been doing product management for the last 15 years but you still learn a ton of stuff from these visionaries in a day. It is one of the best I have attended in my career.

    Awesome conference, thanks NERD for simulcasting. from Eric, to Mitch, to Steve Blank, to UX people - lots to take in, good stories and the explanations behind the stories. Quote of the night: "Your valuation is not my concern" :-).

    If anyone is working for a health tech (wireless health, healthcare social networking, etc.) start-up or is interested in health tech in general, let me know. It would be great to connect tomorrow!

    Will the simulcast be available live on the web for those who can't go to NERD from 12 - 9:30 pm?

    Thanks, Howie - Meetup doesn't currently allow you to set an end time (it just assumes it's 1 hour long). I just voted up the request to allow end times here, so maybe they'll add it :) http://meetup.uservoice.com/forums/37079-ideas-and-suggestions-for-meetup/suggestions/1599315-allow-us-to-put-an-end-time-in-the-heading-of-the-?ref=title

    Looking forward to it!
    Feedback for the organizers: It seems as if the Google "Add To My Calendar" link incorrectly adds the event from 12 to only 1pm. I had to manually extend it until 9:30pm. Perhaps this can be fixed so that it adds correctly? Thanks!
