put some faces to names of fellow lean enthusiasts in the area!

  • Jan 21, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In this initial meetup, we'll plan to just get to meet each other, learn something about what brought us all to the group and share ideas on how we can structure the meetup in future.

If it can be worked out in time, we'll plan to have a speaker talk for ~15 minutes on how they practice lean methodologies, and then spend most of the time for the group to talk about their own experiences, share pains/problems, get inspiration from others etc.

The structure of the meetup will be something like (very subject to change -- please send me feedback if you have better ideas!):

630 - 7 Meet/greet
7 - 715 Intro from organiser
715 - 730 Talk from lean practitioner
730 - 830 Discussion/Q&A/Shared learning!
830 - Networking/socialising time

More details to be added as they become available. Provisional first meetup scheduled for Jan 21 (TBC) in central Zurich (venue to be confirmed).

Note - we hope to arrange a German language equivalent as well -- please stay tuned!

    Hi everyone,
    I setup a Google+ community "Lean Startup Zurich", it has open membership so you can sign up for it as you like. I noticed now that Meetup has a discussion board, so not sure which one will be more useful but the Google+ option is there if needed.

    Very good meeting - especially as it was the first one for this group/community.

    Hi all -- quick update on location. Google won't work out this time, so we are working on a couple of other options. Prime choice looks like Doodele @TAM Media in central Zurich (very easy to access; thanks to Malte for investigating this!); otherwise, Fredi and I chatted about an option in Blue Lion in Zurich Nord which is a possibility. Last choice will be the Juan Costa restaurant next to Google, who I also spoke to today.

    Thanks for your patience with these last minute changes; I'm learning along the way here too!

    Really looking forward to the first meeting on Monday and getting things kicked off!

    Hi everyone and happy new year. Apologies for the slight radio silence over the holidays. Currently I am planning to host the meetup at our offices, in the Huerlimann Areal. I'll confirm this by Jan 15th (Tuesday) along with any change in plans. If it's in Google, I'll be in reception from 630 and then we can head in from there around 7/whenever people are arrived.

    Once we're done, I think we can head to the Juan Costa bar/restuarant for people to carry on chatting etc til whenever they want/get kicked out!

    For those coming in from the HB in Zurich, tram 13 is your best bet all the way to Enge - Bederstrasse. From there it's <5 mins walking.

    As per Thomas' suggestion, we might mix the agenda up a bit -- as mentioned above, I'll plan on kicking things off at 7 so people have time to arrive. If anyone wants to give a presentation (very informal) on their use of lean practices and the key learnings to date, or their challenges, please let me know. Thanks,

    Stephen

    Suggestion (from other meetups): Start right away, meet&greet after the presentations, so people have something to talk about.
