The Lean Canvas is a one page visual business plan to document and identify the steps to finding product/market fit. Dennis Britton will walk us through how to use the Lean Canvas, which necessitates a discussion of all the issues that need to be addressed in the planning stages prior to developing a prototype, as well as what needs to happen, challenges and issues in testing the prototype in the market, monitizing and scaling.

Bring your product plans and lean canvas with you to discuss in depth!
