10 Lean Startup Machine Tips and Tricks | @TriKro

Cool post, 10 Lean Startup Machine Tips and Tricks by Tristan Kromer at Grasshoperherder.com. There are actually more than 10 (Tristan admits to not being a great editor).

I was at Lean Startup Machine in New York last weekend. (LSM is a 48 hour excursion into lean startup techniques created by Trevor Owens to push your boundaries and help you learn something about your business model.)

  1. Problems don’t exist. You can’t go out and talk to a problem. Focus relentlessly on people.
  2. Cash in hand beats bullshit on slide. A pretty powerpoint isn’t impressive. Go get a real customer to hand you money.
  3. If your teammates don’t buy in, then test fast and let reality convince them. You’re not going to win by arguing, you’ll just wind up working alone.
  4. If your MVP can’t prove you wrong, then it can’t prove you right either.
  5. Ask questions like a child. Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?

There are some good thoughts in this post and I am looking forward to learning more about Lean Startup Machine.
