The Lean Startup method created by Eric Ries has been gaining significant popularity over the past couple of years. A natural extension of the popular Agile methods, it focuses on delivering much smaller ‘slices’ of products and acting on real customer feedback rather than the more traditional big-bang startup approach. Even though the name suggests that it’s geared towards startup companies, the approach can be used even in existing private and public sector organizations of all sizes when building new systems or products.
This session will feature several local entrepreneurs who are actively using Lean Startup in their work, and they’ll talk about how they’ve applied it, and the peaks and valleys of adopting this new approach!
We’re pleased to announce that this event will be hosted in the Lounge at Shopify, 126 York St. in the Byward Market (in the Major Building), Suite 200 (map here). For those using public transit, OC Transpo Route 1 passes nearby on Dalhousie St.
Doors open at 6:00 with networking until 6:30 when the session begins.
