This week I kicked off my Lean Startup series of workshops with 'Lean Startup in Action' in partnership with Learnemy in Singapore. What started as a idea with Learnemy founder Elisha turned out to be a huge success, as students were given a practical run through on how that can apply the theory and lesson's of Eric Ries' best selling book, The Lean Startup. Eric's book is an essential read for all entrepreneurs, but knowing how to use it can be a challenge at times.
Lean Startup is a field-tested philosophy that provides you with a toolset to minimise failure and increase your chances of success. But what is Lean Startup, or more importantly, how do I implement Lean principles into my own company? Drawn from Eric Ries’ bestseller, my short introduction shows entrepreneurs how I drive successful ventures. I have been building startups for the past 7 years and have refined a practical approach to building “lean startups.” This is a science for transforming an idea to a functioning new business with minimal risk, wastage and learning.
For the first workshop I was extremely grateful for the help of Microsoft Bizspark who helped with the venue, and my Learning Mentor, David Sicari. David's decades of experience in creating and developing learning and development programs proved invaluable as the course framework came together. The result was a highly engaged group, that made serious progress on their learning journey as entrepreneurs.
It seems that success has had some regional reach, as I have accepted the offer to take the workshop to Manila in the Philippines next Thursday evening. So all my Startup friends in Manila have chance to attend. I'm so excited to be heading back to Manila.
