    Shachar S. on Sep 7, 2012.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     Good stuff but you guys have to do a better job with presentation setup. There's often AV issues which robs momentum and wastes time. Perhaps if you insisted that presenters give a copy of their presentation, etc 24 hours in advance and run from one computer that you know works may help. 

    Ara on Sep 7, 2012.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     This was my first visit and I am very interested in learning more :) 

    ceci m. on Sep 7, 2012.

    Thomas B. on Apr 20, 2012.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     It would be good to invite corporates in to talk about how they are incubating ideas and how they use the lean start up methodology. I just got through a project with Allstate and Vibes and it was an education on both sides. 

    George M. on Apr 20, 2012.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     This was my first meeting and I was pleasantly surprised. About 10 of us got together prior to the event which was extremely helpful in establishing friendships and getting know each other more personally. Great idea from Eric Li. 

    Richard A. on Dec 16, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     It seems to be very effective. I want to meet with the entrepreneurship startup group. How do I get there to meet with them via the web site as well as in person? I have anew startup that is currently on line: www.teleffective.com. I have two more ideas for startups. I have the domain names registered but need some assistance like the finalists did in making the right choices and preparing a checklist of priorities. Who should I contact?> 

    James R Pitcher J. on Dec 16, 2011.

     My wish is that it will continue, and have a long and robust existence. 

    Alan S. on Dec 16, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     I think the group is providing a great service to the startup community and is very valuable. I think there can be some improvements made around organization and execution of some events, but in general I think it is going in the right direction. 

    Chris on Dec 16, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     So far, so good!

    Ian C. on Sep 23, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     Overall, they're doing a good job despite some of the growing pains. It's a good problems to have that there are too many people interested in the events vs too few. 

    Matt L. on Sep 23, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     great concept and I hope it keeps growing!!!!!! there is no greater power than the power of ideas!

    David P. on Aug 19, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     I dig it... I've been to several Chicago Lean Start Up events ... so far the speakers have been great. Relevant topics, good networking venue, and great selection of beer! 

    Daniel B. on Aug 19, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     Excellent! All meetups I've attended are very informative 

    Yao Wee N. on Jul 25, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     I love the idea of this group and the topics of the meetups, but wished for more compelling speaking style and content from some of the presenters. Great idea for a meetup, but needs more energy and something to facilitate interaction/networking among more of the attendees. In one meeting, individuals who were starting businesses or were recruiting individuals voiced their needs. This was really helpful, but it's only happened once while I was at this meetup. Also, some kind of activity where you quickly work on an idea or have a discussion with a smaller group could be an interesting addition of the programming that would facilitate people getting to know each other and interact more. 

    Nicholas E. on Jul 20, 2011.

  • Chicago Lean Startup Circle

     This is prime place to learn from the experience of those who are actively engaged in lean startup.

    Joel on Sep 24, 2010.
