What is your startup and at what stage of development are you?

I've done lots of non-technical start-ups. However, at the moment, I'm an Angel investor in several different start-ups in Indianapolis and I'm the founding investor of a new start-up called

Why are you interested in Lean Startup practices?

I've started three dental practices from scratch and several other non-tech start-ups that failed because we didn't understand "customer development". Now I want to do something in the "tech world". Plus, I've been reading about the lean start-up methods and listening to Steve Blank for awhile now.

How did you hear about this group? If you were referred, who referred you?

Frank Dale at a Verge meeting told me that he wanted to start a Meetup around The Lean Start-up Methodology and invited me to join this meetup.


I'm Dr. Tony Ratliff and I'm a dentist during the day, but I really enjoying investing in technology and I consider myself a start-up junkie.

What Dr. Tony R. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great meeting. Thanks for allowing me to share our story about MissionKonnect. Great group of people to speak with tonight and awesome conversations afterwards. I enjoyed the discussions.
