Successful CMOs achieve growth by leveraging technology. Join us for GrowthBeat Summit on June 1-2 in Boston, where we'll discuss how to merge creativity with technology to drive growth. Space is limited. Request your personal invitation here!

In this episode, VentureBeat’s Dylan Tweney and Jordan Novet talk with Jay Nath, the chief innovation officer for the city of San Francisco, about the ways that S.F. is embracing the “lean startup” philosophy and working with entrepreneurs. Yes, he really does use the terms “minimum viable product,” “interface,” and “product-market fit.”

We also discuss some of the news highlights of the week, including an innovative (and free!) French engineering school, Tesla’s patent giveaway, and a friggin’ $60 pencil.
