What we're about

The Portland, Oregon Lean Startup Circle Meetup.

“A startup is an organization formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.” (Steve Blank)

"A startup is a human institution designed to deliver a product or service in conditions of extreme uncertainty" (Eric Ries)

The number one reason that Startups fail is lack of customers (~90%), not product development failure (~10%). The Lean Startup is an approach that attempts to acknowledge this and create startup success.

We are PDX startup entrepreneurs who are passionate about developing customers and markets for our products in a disciplined, iterative, and measured way.

We share our thoughts and experiences with the application of Customer Development, Lean Thinking, Lean/Agile Software Development, Open Source Software, and Cloud Computing as it applies to startups and new products.
