What we're about

This is an open group for people which are starting their own Startup or thinking about that. But even if you founded a successful company this might be useful.

The main goals for this group:
- Help to answer the a question: "Why should I (not) found a Startup?"
- If you already decided to found a Startup, then we would like to help to make the Startup successful
- Share experience of those who already founded or worked in Startups
- Networking: we would like to help people find business partners, Co-Founders or like-minded people

During our meetups we're going to cover such topics like:
- Lean Startup
- Product development
- Usability and Lean UX
- Agile
- Online Marketing
- Founding a company
- Finding investors
- Finding Co-Founders
- etc.
