What we're about

The Austin Lean Startup Circle conducts FREE monthly workshops to help entrepreneurs learn and apply lean startup principles using the Founder’s Journey Framework* by LeanMastery. The Founder’s Journey Framework helps first time and struggling founders avoid mistakes that cost time and money.

Come join us to learn, work, and get help as you strive to make products that customers want.

For new members who are actively working on their own startup or are trying to figure out the best way to get started, we offer FREE ONLINE ACCESS to an overview of the Founder’s Journey Framework. You can learn more about LeanMastery and register for FREE access here (https://houtx.co/LeanStartupHOU_About_LeanMastery).

You can also learn more about the Founder’s Journey Framework, including the Essential Questions, Learning Objectives and Mastery Skills Gained, by clicking here (http://lean.fyi/LMweb_Overview).

This is not a group to promote general entrepreneurship through story telling or get-rich-quick schemes. This group is for people who are pursuing the American Dream of building their own thriving business by introducing new products and services that deliver extraordinary value to their customers.

* Founder’s Journey Framework (TM), developed by Stephen White, and Shafique Pappa on behalf of LeanMastery, is based on the works by Eric Ries (https://houtx.co/LeanStartupHOU_EricRies), Steve Blank (https://houtx.co/LeanStartupHOU_SteveBlank), and Bill Aulet (https://houtx.co/LeanStartupHOU_BillAulet) as well as Stephen and Shafique’s collective experience starting multiple successful businesses and having coached hundreds of founders on their startups.
