Eric Ries was kind enough to invite me to speak at his Lean Startup Conference.
In the talk, I reviewed the basic components of the lean startup and described how we teach it. I observed that now that we’ve built software to instrument and monitor the progress of new ventures (using LaunchPad Central), we are entering the world of evidence-based entrepreneurship and the Investment Readiness Level.
