Lean Startup Discussion


You are warmly invited to the RVA Social Entrepreneurs Meetup event on lean startup methodology Wednesday, February 5th from 12pm to 1:30pm.  The Lean Startup movement was developed in the tech industry in Silicon Valley because startups wanted to be more innovative, stop wasting people's time, and be more successful.  It doesn't matter if you are a startup, a large or small business, government, or non-profit--these ideas can be helpful!

We have an exciting panel to lead us in this discussion.  Graham Henshaw is a guest lecturer on lean startup at William & Mary Mason School of Business and is also the Engagement Director at New Richmond Ventures.  Tom Illmensee is the Director of User Experience at Plan G and has implemented lean startup methodology in his work.

Our friends at INM United have graciously offered to host us and their address is below.

    Looking forward to seeing those who brave the snow. We have lots of changes going on around Advantech, and some other impact investment opportunities are gathering steam. Give me a shout if you want further info...
