What we're about
Inspired by the works of Eric Ries (http://www.startuplessonslearned.com/) and Steve Blank (http://steveblank.com/), the Houston Lean Startup Circle conducts FREE monthly workshops to provide entrepreneurs a practical guide to learn and apply lean startup principles.
The new entrepreneurship era is all about customers and their problems. The number one reason that startups fail is lack of customers, not product development failure. The Lean Startup is an approach that acknowledges this and is a collection of techniques built for validating learning through fast iteration, particularly the "Build > Measure > Learn" cycle.
This is not a group to promote general entrepreneurship; it is a focused group for people who are introducing new products and services into the market. If you are an entrepreneur who strives to discover paying customers and build the products that they want, then this group is for you.
For new members, we offer free online access to an overview of our past workshops, where you can quickly catch up and feel part of the community while also being able to contact us directly with any questions that you may have. You can register for access here (https://houtx.co/LM_About_Explorers). If you’d like to learn more about this Practitioner’s Guide Overview, including the Essential Questions, Learning Objectives and Mastery Skills Gained, you can review the course page (https://www.leanmastery.co/overview).
