This meetup is not about how to write a business plan. The end result is not a PowerPoint slide deck for a VC presentation.
Instead, we want to get our hands dirty talking to customers, partners, and competitors to leap into the chaos and uncertainly of how a startup actually works.
We’ll learn how to use a business model to brainstorm each part of a company, customer development to get out of the building and see whether anyone would want and use your product, and agile development to help us rapidly iterate our products into something customers will use and buy.
The goal is to have a validated business model that can bootstrap profitably or raise capital
