What we're about

Welcome to the Lean Startup Orlando Meetup Group!
It's #NotJustAboutStartups - it's about innovation methodology across business domains.

We are an ambitious group of startup founders, community mentors, entrepreneurial enthusiasts, product developers, and innovation leaders. Our Meetup group serves the Central Florida community as a platform to share experiences, learnings, questions and thoughts about innovation - and especially The Lean Startup by Eric Reis. 

"The Lean Startup" is a book that applies to all kinds of organizations but our topics go beyond it to modern innovation methodology including Design Thinking, Agile, Data-driven decision making and tools like the Business Model Canvas. Our presenters and guest speakers represent the startup community, non-profits and social enterprises, and large enterprise - and together - our goal is to grow the knowledge base of Lean Startup and broaden the understanding of how the Lean Startup Methodology delivers value to all types of organizations.   

We curate speakers from the Orlando community, and oftentimes, we will feature guest speakers from Silicon Valley and other entrepreneurial ecosystems. 

For a group that truly is a mix of people engaged in innovation from varied backgrounds - join us for our next event!
