Following the format of the previous meetup which seemed to work well - a quick pitch from an entrepreneur which we discuss against the lean canvas, followed by the chance for others to pitch ideas and get useful feedback.
If you spend half an hour beforehand putting your ideas down on canvas - a one page lean canvas (http://leanstack.com/) then you've got some great material to bring to the event. A business venture, a rough idea, an internal project - you choose.
After EPIC we head to a nearby bar to meet and get to know each other over a drink.
As some of you know, Tom Harding (the previous organiser) has headed to explore the US - leaving Rachel Wright (http://www.meetup.com/Lean-Startup-Christchurch/members/95475012/) and myself (http://www.meetup.com/Lean-Startup-Christchurch/members/104638762/) with the Lean Statup Circle Christchurch. The plan is to hold these events a bit more regularly, so get in touch if you have ideas you want covered.
Hope to meet you at the event.
