Small Business and Entrepreneur Event

Presented by Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee

February 22, 2017

Curious about Lean Startup? What does it really mean and why is everyone talking about it? Lean is a way of thinking that can shorten cycles for developing products and business startups. It is a logical, scientific approach that helps businesses and entrepreneurs draw distinct lines between the fuzzy dream in their head and the reality on the ground. Best of all it teaches us how to create a deep, lasting relationship with the most important person our business will ever know: our customers.

Come join moderator Bob Smith, a serial entrepreneur and Lean Startup instructor and a panel of experienced Lean practitioners as they provide an overview of the process and how it can be used during any phase of the business life cycle; startup to new product development.
