Startup Lean Coffee - February 2019
For our inaugural meeting at Betaworks Studios, we had around 50 people sign up for 20 spots; and roughly 12 showed up at 8:30 AM to an amazing breakfast spread and an engaging lean coffee. We broke up into two groups and shared our topics and take-aways at the end of the hour. The topics that we discussed included:
Communicating complex ideas
What are the newest surprising behaviors
Maintaining trust in a remote team
What are the most interesting new technologies
Art of selling/persuasion
Alternatives to venture capital
Consumer marketing outside of social media
Outsourcing vs. hiring
What would transform your business
About Startup Lean Coffee
Startup Lean Coffee is a monthly gathering of founders, early employees, advisors, investors, and anyone involved or interested in joining the startup world in any capacity. Our sole purpose is to help each other improve by sharing questions and experiences. All you need to bring is your attention, curiosity, and willingness to share.
We follow a Lean Coffee meeting format, a lightly facilitated meeting where participants democratically build an agenda and discuss each topic for a fixed time, voting to continue discussion or mo on tveo the next topic after the time runs out.
