What we're about

Lean Startup Seattle is for anyone interested in the application of Lean Startup Principles and the Customer Development process developed by Steve Blank and refined by Eric Ries. We are bringing the Seattle Lean Startup community together in a variety of formats to learn from each other. What works? What doesn't? Is lean just a buzzword? Or can it really help build businesses?

"The Lean Startup movement is taking hold in companies both new and established to help entrepreneurs and managers do one important thing: make better, faster business decisions." ~ Eric Ries (http://theleanstartup.com/)

"I'm a big fan of Lean Startups as well as "focused meetups" (vs. the come one / come all approach) so consider me a big fan." ~ Brad Feld (http://www.feld.com/wp/about)

"I think it's well understood that I am a big fan of the lean startup methodology" ~ Fred Wilson (http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2011/05/startup-lessons-learned.html)
