What is lean startup methodology?
The lean startup methodology favours experimentation over elaborate planning, customer feedback over intuition, and iterative design over traditional “big design up front” development.” (Source)
The lean startup methodology is a method of managing and building a business where you are always focused on the value for your customer and how can you eliminate waste from the process so that you build exactly what customers want.
“Throughout the process, you are applying this methodology to assume, to test, then to learn to form the tests and assume again. You are always focused on Needs of your customers, to learn how can you bring new value to the table” – Filip S.
What is TeamUp?
TeamUp is a platform and an online event that brings together startups that are at the beginning of the development path and are looking for their co-founders, first collaborators and employees, and individuals looking for their place on the team.
During this interactive event, participants will be able to hear the story of the development of a successful startup company. In the further course of events, startups will present their projects and individuals will have the opportunity to get in direct contact with them through startup networking.
“At Lean Startup Croatia we believe innovation is the centre of economic prosperity. ” – Filip S.
