What we're about

We discuss business modeling, customer development, lean startup methodology, business experimentation, start-up strategy, innovation metrics, behavior science, and many other topics -- with the unifying philosophy that there are tools, frameworks, and practices that make this process more effective.

This group is for people in the early-stage of a starting something, and is particularly good for:

• A first-time founder

• A founder with a business idea in "ideation" or is just getting started. This could be pre-customer or still low in customer numbers.

• A leader with business/start-up that hasn't gotten the growth that you were expecting, This can happen if some steps were skipped, which is very common for startups in general.

• A person in "preparation mode" -- you might be strongly considering becoming a founder, but haven't yet made the leap.We talk about topics that help entrepreneurs move more quickly and effectively through the early-stage.

Your business idea could be a tech startup, a "lifestyle" business, a side hustle, or a new business line for an existing business. It could be for profit, non-profit or a B-corp. Perhaps you don't have an idea yet or maybe you have too many. The thing that we know is that if you are in the early-stage of starting something new, the tools, actions, and mind set required are very similar. And it helps to have people supporting you.

Join us for meetings that are specifically designed to change your effectiveness at making your ideas into reality.
