What is Lean Startup?
"Lean Startup" is a system for developing a business or product in the most efficient way possible to reduce the risk of failure.
It is an approach for launching businesses and products that treats all product and business ideas as assumptions (or hypotheses) that must be validated by rapid experimentation in the marketplace. The approach relies on scientific experimentation, iterative product releases, and customers feedback to generate validated learning.

All over the world, Lean Startup Circle communities are getting together to share knowledge, experiences and build networks. It's about time that Christchurch's startup entrepreneurs and investors had a place to get together!
To get things started we will have Ben Reid, Director at Memia (http://memia.com), talking about practical experience applying lean startup methodologies. Ben will be giving a quick overview of lean methodologies and how these can be applied to your startup.
We'll then open up the floor to gather thoughts on which direction we can take our Lean Startup Circle meetings next.
