What we're about

You hate waste in product development? Like planning this next project feature that you rightfully know won’t help, but your manager asked you to do so...
You like the startup mindset? A mindset that is exciting, inspiring, challenging, and fastly paced.

Then you should join us to discuss about the Lean Startup methodology — that can be applied in both the startup or the corporate world.
We won’t cover the basics of Eric Ries’ book, so make sure you document yourself before joining.

What you can expect from this meetup:
* Inspiring stories by entrepreneurs who successfully (or not!) applied the Lean Startup methodology
* Pro-tips that you can apply the very next day
* Exciting discussions around croissants before you get back to work, full of inspiration and energy
* No wasteful blabla talk, only actionable stuff

The meetup will be hosted in Lausanne, and potentially in Fribourg (will depend on the speakers and interest we find there).

We usually all speak English, so you are welcome too if you do not speak French.
