What we're about

Silicon Valley Startups with global members bring innovation and creativity to change the world! 

Together we 

  • celebrate technology 
  • learn to be resourceful
  • want always to be learning
  • empower each other

Lean Startup Circle is dedicated to applying lean startup thinking and building lean startup leadership. We bring the Silicon Valley lean startup community together in a variety of formats (many of which involve beer) to learn from each other. What works? What doesn't? Is lean just a buzzword? Or can it really help build businesses? * The Lean Startup is a trademark and service mark owned by Eric Ries. *

Business is a complex (not just complicated) endeavor. Most successes happen in spite of errors. And most successes are temporary, depending on your time horizon. Depending on the sources of errors, and your mindset, these can be insanely frustrating, or liberating. Bill Seitz will share some of his learnings, so you can experience more "interesting" errors.
