Eric Ries was kind enough to invite me to speak at his Lean Startup Conference.
In the talk I reviewed the basic components of the Lean Startup and described how we teach it. I observed that now that we've built software to instrument and monitor the progress of new ventures (using LaunchPad Central), that we are entering the world of evidence-based entrepreneurship and the Investment Readiness Level.
This video is a companion to the blog post here. Read it for context.
