June 2010 Entrepreneur's Forum

Financing Lean/Agile Startups

  • What is an "lean" or "agile" startup? Do non-lean startups exist?
  • What are viable options for financing a startup until you achieve profitability or fundability?
  • Is "lean" a (temporary) stage of a startup or a (permanent) type of startup?
  • If it's a stage, what is the objective of the stage? What is a "product/market mix". How do you know when you've achieved it?
  • If it's a type, what makes certain startups more applicable to the lean/agile approach than others? How do you finance startups not of that type?
  • If you've already achieved a product/market mix, why would you then give away equity and control by seeking venture funding?
  • What legal structures (LLC, C-Corp, S-Corp; Delaware vs. New York; etc) are most appropriate for the lean approach?
  • What impact will proposed changes to angel finance regulations have on bootstrappers?
  • What event should trigger a search for investment? Competition? Acceleration? Being first to market? Finding an application for a new technology? Funding development of an initial prototype? Sustaining a system with lots of users but no revenue model?
  • Does 'lean-ness' change after financing? What should change about the way a startup spends money after a financing round?
