Singapore Lean Startup Circle (2012-2013)
There are Lean Startup Circles in many cities around the world. The Singapore chapter took shape after the first Singapore Lean Startup Machine, in August 2012, where I was a mentor. Inspired by Ray Wu, then of LSM and now of JFDI, a group of us came together to keep building community around lean startup. Each event has a theme, e.g. pivoting or analytics, with three speaker who talk for 10 minutes and answer questions. The goal of the events, which attract about 75 people, is to provide experiences and insights from real startup founders and practitioners who are employing lean principles. While in Singapore I helped with emceeing and sourcing speakers.
