NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

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.
