  • Thank you: sponsors, mentors, volunteers, Charles, David, Erin
  • I’m not leaving you, I’m pivoting to another man
  • Conference structure
  • Truth: The Lean Startup method is not about cost, it is about speed. Lean Startups waste less money, because they use a disciplined approach to testing new products and ideas. Lean, when used in the context of lean startup, refers to a process of building companies and products using lean manufacturing principles applied to innovation. That process involves rapid hypothesis testing, validated learning about customers, and a disciplined approach to product development.
  • Truth: The Lean Startup methodology applies to all companies that face uncertainty about what customers will want. This is true regardless of industry or even scale of company: many large companies depend on their ability to create disruptive innovation. Those general managers are entrepreneurs, too. And they can benefit from the speed and discipline of starting with a minimum viable product and then learning and iterating continuously.
  • Truth: There’s nothing wrong with raising venture capital. Many lean startups are ambitious and are able to deploy large amounts of capital. What differentiates them is their disciplined approach to determining when to spend money: after the fundamental elements of the business model have been empirically validated. Because lean startups focus on validating their riskiest assumptions first, they sometimes charge money for their product from day one – but not always.
  • Truth: Lean Startups are driven by a compelling vision, and they are rigorous about testing each element of this vision against reality. They use customer development, split-testing, and actionable analytics as vehicles for learning about how to make their vision successful. But they do not blindly do what customers tell them, nor do they mechanically attempt to optimize numbers. Along the way, they pivot away from the elements of the vision that are delusional and double-down on the elements that show promise.

    • 7. Entrepreneurship = Awesome
      It is the best time in the history of the world to be an entrepreneur
      Costs are falling in all industries
      Barriers are being destroyed
      Disruption and chaos are everywhere
    • 8. Why build a startup?
      Only entrepreneurship combines these three elements
      Change the world
      Build an organization of lasting value
      Make customers’ lives better
    • 9. What is a startup?
      • A startup is a human institution designed to deliver a new product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
      • 10. Nothing to do with size of company, sector of the economy, or industry
    • What is a startup?
      STARTUP
      =
      EXPERIMENT
    • 11. Entrepreneurship is management
      • Our goal is to create an institution, not just a product
      • 12. Traditional management practices fail
      - “general management” as taught to MBAs
      • Need practices and principles geared to the startup context of extreme uncertainty
      • 13. Not just for “two guys in a garage”
    • The Pivot
    • 14. I’
    • 15. The Pivot
      • What do successful startups have in common?
      • 16. They started out as digital cash for PDAs, but evolved into online payments for eBay.
      • 17. They started building BASIC interpreters, but evolved into the world's largest operating systems monopoly.
      • 18. They were shocked to discover their online games company was actually a photo-sharing site.
      • 19. Pivot: change directions but stay grounded in what we’ve learned.
    • Speed Wins
      If we can reduce the time between pivots
      We can increase our odds of success
      Before we run out of money

    • 21. Making Progress
      • In a lean transformation, question #1 is – which activities are value-creating and which are waste?
      • 22. In traditional business, value is created by delivering products or services to customers
      • 23. In a startup, the product and customer are unknowns. We need a new definition of value for startups:validated learning about customers
