This will be our "open-mic night" for Startup pitches. If you're planning on attending Startup Weekend this Spring, this is be a great way for you to practice pitching, even if you're not pitching the exact idea that you'll do at Startup Weekend.
Show up early and grab a drink at 6pm, pitches will start at 7pm and wil be 60 seconds of pitching and 60 seconds of one-way feedback! No slides. We look forward to seeing you there.
We will not be providing food or drinks at this event unless somebody would like to step up and sponsor a round of drinks or appetizers.
About Houston Lean Startup Circle
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 attempts to acknowledge this and create startup success.
The Lean Startup is a collection of techniques built around maximizing validated customer learning through fast Build/Measure/Learn iteration loops.
This is not a group to promote general entrepreneurship, it is a focused group for people who are introducing new technology products and services into the market. If you are a high-tech entrepreneur who strives to discover customers and build products that they want, then this group is for you.
We share our thoughts and experiences with the application of Customer Development, Lean Thinking, and Lean/Agile Software Development as it applies to startups and new products.
