The OC Lean Startup Circle is the home for smart and driven high-tech entrepreneurs that are focused on building products that matter, based on real market opportunity validation, and focused customer development.

Lean Startups (which can include for profit and not for profit organizations, new product/innovation organizations within larger companies and even government agencies) achieve success faster than most because they get out of the building to talk to customers, validate business model assumptions as quickly and cheaply as possible, use agile  development to decrease time to market and leverage continuous deployment to learn as fast as possible.

OC Lean Startup Circle is all about Lean:  It is also the official Orange County Chapter for the Lean Startup Movement*. It is hosted by K5**.

Lean OC also actively help organize and sponsors Startup Weekends and Lean Startup Machine events in Orange County.

Our mission is to gather and create collaboration between the brightest entrepreneurs in SoCal and specifically in Orange County and help them reduce risk and find a path to success.  Our guest speakers include Brant Cooper, Patrick Vlaskovits, Sean Ellis, Isaac Seldana, Robin Pimentel, Dr Richard Sudek, Eric Jackson, David Chen, Max Marmer, Bjoern  Hermann, and many others that share their stories and techniques so we can all learn from each other.
