DC Lean Startup Circle
We want to help you be a better entrepreneur. We've found the Lean Startup methodology is an extremely effective way to do that.
Lean: Accomplish your objectives wasting a minimum of resources, especially time.
Startup: A human institution creating a new product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty
Mindset: Entrepreneurs who are experienced enough to "know what they don't know" about their market and committed to learning through evidence
