What we're about
This is a Lean Startup Circle in Asheville, NC. We serve Western North Carolina and welcome all entrepreneurs to join us in this dynamic group of great thinkers to advance your business idea!
If you are getting ready to launch a new business, have recently launched - or are looking to grow your business in a new direction, this group will save you gobs of time & energy!
Lean startup principles (http://theleanstartup.com/) are those that get our products & services to market faster while focusing on getting early - essential feedback & commitment from our target market. We challenge assumptions - provide suggestions & grant wisdom to those entrepreneurs that make the world go 'round.
This Meetup provides a venue for working sessions where entrepreneurs present their business ideas in an open forum. This open forum has members of the local community with various skills that can lend support to the new business venture. The open forum is asked to weigh in on opinion - provide construction criticism & share their experiences in the best interest of the entrepreneur.
Therefore, if you have an idea or specialty that would help the group - we would love to see you here. Simply go http://www.meetup.com/Lean-Startup-Circle-Asheville/ - sign up & RSVP. There are no dues (the venue is provided by our sponsor - Chrysalis Consulting (http://www.leading4achange.com/)). The meeting runs exactly 2 hours - starts on time & ends on time.
What This Group Is Not
We are not a networking group in the normal sense of the term. That is, we do not want companies to present elevator speeches - business cards or flyers. However, we do enjoy learning about one another's specialties as they relate to the business venture being presented.
